ENISA – European Union Agency for Network and Informational Security is a centre of cybersecurity expertise in Europe. It is seated in Heraklion, Crete with an operational office in Athens. In July this year, European lawmakers voted in favour of giving more power and a larger budget to ENISA. The vote also made ENISA the sole reference point for a new EU-wide cybersecurity certification scheme.

How ENISA works? in a specific way, as opposed to undertaking cybersecurity strategy management in each member state, it acts as a catalyst and provider of expertise. This involves everything from massive cybersecurity exercises to managing European Cybersecurity month, making policy recommendations and liaising with both political and industrial figureheads in each member state.
