EC reviews infosecurity regime

A set of recommendations for better information security standards in Europe will be debated at an open meeting to be held this Friday (June 13) in Brussels. The recommendations have been produced by the Network and Information Security (NIS) Focus Group. The group includes technical experts appointed by the two European standards organisations CEN (European Committee for Standardisation) and ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute). The group’s principal goal was to evaluate existing security standards, and to identify possible gaps in the standards spectrum. Created in July 2002, the group has now completed its final draft report which has been available for public comment since mid-May. The open meeting on 13 June will debate the report plus comments received and provide a basis for a consensus on the report and its recommendations. Full Story
