URWP Update (L10a)
The society in which we live is rapidly digitalising, more devices are developed, used and connected to each other, creating a digital ecosystem in which cyber incidents can have a major disruptive and adverse impact on our society. With the digital market growing, the cyber risks and incidents are growing as well. Cybersecurity in this respect is no longer seen as a separate area of interest, but is integrated in all aspects of our daily lives, whether we look at the industry, economy, the environment we live in, healthcare, scientific investigations, transport, communication, and so on. Demonstrated cyber security robustness of ICT products or ICT services is a quality feature, a contributor to a sustainable society, a cost saving factor in terms of (product/service) liability and an effective branding, reputational and trade facilitating tool. Every reason to certify a product or service for the EU market and to set up a European Union Framework of cybersecurity certification schemes that help to enhance a Single Digital Market. It starts with a so called “Union Rolling Working Programme”. How is this EU Framework going to be built and how will it be maintained, given the different lifecycles, swift innovations and highly connected market? What role does the Common Criteria play in this new European ecosystem of cybersecurity certification? This “not-to-mis-out” presentation will explain what Governments, Conformity Assessment Bodies, Testing Laboratories and Manufacturers, Developers, Service providers of the Common Criteria community can expect from this new ecosystem, where the EU Cybersecurity Certification Framework and the Union Rolling Working Programme form “a continuous improvement cycle and system of checks & balances”?
