EU certification is a tool that allows product vendors and service providers to demonstrate and promote the cybersecurity of their solutions. The aim of the development of cybersecurity certification at the EU level is to harmonize the recognition of the level of cybersecurity of information and communication technology solutions across the EU, which will allow vendors and service providers to reach more customers.
The EU, through ENISA, is developing an EU cybersecurity certification that provides evidence of compliance with a given level of trust. ENISA currently presents the development of three key certification schemes and describes the benefits and impacts of certification on the entities concerned, which are:
- national cybersecurity certification authorities,
- conformity assessment bodies,
- product sellers and service providers,
- certificate users.
