As of today, a new composition of 30 top security experts start their term of office as members of the Permanent Stakeholders’ Group (PSG), giving advice to the EU’s “cyber security’ Agency ENISA-the European Information and Security Agency.
The PSG is a group of leading security experts that gives advice to the Agency Executive Director, e.g. in drawing up a proposal for the Agency’s Work Programme.
The selected applicants are appointed ad personam as PSG Members. That means that they do neither represent a country, nor a company, but are selected upon basis of expertise and personal merits. The term of office for the members is 2,5 years, i.e. 2010-2012. A list of the appointed members is available here.
ENISA Executive Director Dr. Udo Helmbrecht comments: “I am pleased to announce the appointment of 30 members of the next PSG. In my vision for the Agency, I am convinced Europe needs more cooperation and dialogue with all security stakeholders. The PSG plays an important role in this respect. I am looking forward to working closely with each and every member of the PSG. I am confident the expertise, insight and broad experience the members will bring to the PSG will be beneficial to the Agency. As Chair of the PSG, I am determined to take every opportunity to involve the PSG in taking ENISA further and, in particular, to carefully consider their advice before taking strategic decisions.”
