European Agency Lays out National Risk Management Advice

Europe's leading security agency has said that member states' governments need to work more closely with critical information infrastructure stakeholders in preparation for catastrophes such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks.

ENISA (the European Network and Information Security Agency) released a new report on Thursday, which sets out the essential elements for national risk management (NRM) in relation to essential information infrastructure and calls for closer ties between governments and information infrastructure stakeholders.

The report also says that along with obvious objectives such as setting the vision, establishing the NRM organization, promoting standards and creating awareness, management must also analyze errors and incidents.

The report includes a questionnaire that allows governments to assess their strengths and weaknesses in relation to NRM preparedness using a five-level capability maturity measurement.
