At the centre of tomorrow’s European certifications

At the end of November 2019, Stormshield had the honour and privilege of taking part in a working group tasked with defining the first European cybersecurity certification system, in the wake of the recent Cybersecurity Act.

Selected to form part of this working group alongside ENISA - the European Union agency for cybersecurity - and other partners such as ANSSI, BSI and CCN, Stormshield was the only European cybersecurity publisher and pure-player.

The Cybersecurity Act is a new regulation which simply promises to improve the overall level of security across Europe by setting common certification rules. And the clear aim of this first group is to come up with common evaluation criteria. To find out more, check out the news item published on the ENISA website.

Stormshield’s participation is a reward for our commitment to the issue of certification at both a national and international level. And we are proud that our teams are involved in this task of creating digital confidence in Europe!

At both national and international levels, there are several types of certification and qualification statuses. So, how to make the right choice?
Confidence is currently the central theme of many debates in the cybersecurity sector. Its strategic dimension ties it to a wide variety of ongoing issues and those geopolitical tensions which were clearly visible in 2018 and 2019 have had new repercussions in the world of cyberspace.
