On 16 April 2020, NÚKIB organized a video conference on the EU cybersecurity certification for leading experts on cyber security, information technologies and law. The participants of the video conference were representatives of academic and public service institutions, Czech accreditation institute, CESNET, CZ.NIC and Czech National Agency for Communication and Information Technologies (NAKIT).

The discussion was focused on the process of the implementation of the EU Regulation 2019/881 (Cybersecurity Act) in the Czech Republic. The Regulation lays down, inter alia, a framework for the establishment of European cybersecurity certification schemes with a view to ensuring the proper functioning of the internal market while aiming to achieve a high level of cybersecurity in the EU. The participants of the virtual meeting were informed about the actual state-of-play of the implementation of the Regulation into the national law. The video conference also addressed the planned EU certification schemes and the functioning of the European cybersecurity certification scheme (see picture below). The participants of the meeting agreed that there is a need to deepen the cooperation in cybersecurity certification in order to enhance the capabilities of the Czech Republic in this field.
