Ops director talks to El Reg about continential cybersecurity contrivances
Interview A senior EU cybersecurity official has said he is “optimistic” about information sharing between the UK and the political bloc continuing after Brexit.
In an interview with The Register, Steve Purser of the EU agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) said that while it is “obvious” that the information-sharing relationship “will be changed… if the Brexit goes about”, he is keeping an open mind.
This could be seen as a contrast to the decidedly gloomy view being promoted today by a slack handful of retired defence and security bigwigs.
Having said that, we are looking for global approaches and we will make the best deal out of a bad situation.”
ENISA is a relatively small agency based on the Greek island of Crete.
