Security architecture program 2024

ENCS organises its knowledge development in 3 programs: policy, architecture, and operations. Below, you can explore what we have planned in these areas for 2024.

The security architecture program aims to develop and share knowledge to security architects and others responsible for technical security measures. It covers the design of secure systems and setting security requirements for procuring secure components.

In 2024, ENCS wil focus on preparing for new product cybersecurity requirements from the Radio-Equipment Directive (RED) and Cyber Resilience Act (CRA). Discover below what ENCS will focus on during the security architecture program 2024.
