A Proposal for a European Cybersecurity Taxonomy


The Commission made a commitment in the Communication adopted in September 2018 (COM(2018) 630 final) to launch a pilot phase under Horizon 2020 to help bring national cybersecurity centres together into a network. In this context, the goal of this document is that of aligning the cybersecurity terminologies, definitions and domains into a coherent and comprehensive taxonomy to facilitate the categorisation of EU cybersecurity competencies.
