ENISA releases first annual report of major cyber incidents in the EU

This year, for the first time in the EU, all Member States have reported on past cyber security incidents to the EU’s cyber security agency ENISA and the European Commission. Eleven EU countries reported 51 severe outages of electronic communication networks or services. ENISA has now published the first ever annual report on this, containing an analysis of incidents in 2011.

The report shows that most of the reported incidents affected mobile telephony or mobile Internet (60 percent).

The next annual report will be published in the spring of 2013 and will cover outages that occurred in 2012.

The Executive Director of ENISA, Professor Udo Helmbrecht comments: “We are now, for the first time, equipped with an overview of major cyber incidents in Europe. This is a decisive moment for the EU’s efforts to improve understanding of the impact of cyber security incidents. But this still deals with only a small subset of cyber security incidents. This type of reporting should be extended to cover a wider range of incidents and more sectors.”

For the full report with all data and analysis go to Annual Incidents Report 2011.
