News Connect with @ENISA_EU

The EU’s ‘cyber security’ Agency, ENISA (the European Network and Information Security Agency), is launching its new upgraded website, including new social media channels, on Wednesday, 19 September 2012.

These channels were developed in-house for more coherent corporate communications, include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube accounts, and will be an integral element of the Agency’s online communications.

In addition, the Agency’s website has been redesigned to further improve ease of navigation, usability and end-user experience. The new site has dynamic fast-paced architecture providing access to ENISA’s Work Programme, latest reports and position papers, projects, publications and audiovisual material.

The Executive Director of ENISA, Professor Udo Helmbrecht, comments:  “I am looking forward to this new phase in our communications. I am personally an ardent fan of new technologies. With many of us now “always online” through 24/7 access and smartphones and mobile devices, ENISA needs to be more visible in cyber space. Social networks extend the Agency’s reach, to give easier access to our latest security analyses and information for safer working and networking online, especially for children.”

ENISA’s social media channels will act as quick and simple platforms for short updates on the Agency’s forthcoming studies and reports, future events, insight and expert analysis on emerging trends and risks. Updates will also include links to vacancies, activities, conferences and procurements.

Forthcoming events for ENISA include the Workshop on Cyber Security Strategies, EU Cyber Security Month throughout October and the first Annual Privacy Forum on 10-11 October 2012 in Cyprus.

Professor Udo Helmbrecht added: “We look forward to engaging actively with the online community. ‘Follow’ and ‘Like’ us!”
