Information Security Regulation: Tomorrow Never Dies?

  • Andreas Mitrakas


The widespread use of information technology in daily transactions has exacerbated the role of information security to protect information assets. The potential vulnerabilities that have been typically associated with transactions in public administration and private enterprise often pose challenges that governments, private organizations and individuals are compelled to respond to by adopting security measures. The setting up of a dedicated EU Agency on network and information security marks a turning point tin EU policy in this area. The recent decision of the European Court of Justice regarding the ENISA case sheds new light in the interpretation of article 95 of the Treaty and it provides new input with regard to the regulation of network and information security. This paper provides a snapshot on EU regulation regarding network and information security and reports on relevant recent work.
