On Tuesday, Minister for Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Information Nikos Pappas signed an agreement with the executive director of ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency), Udo Helbrecht, according to which the Agency’s headquarters will remain in Greece.

In September, the European Commission announced a proposal on the new Regulation regarding the operation of ENISA, which is upgraded to European Cyber Security Organization. Its powers are increased, and new goals are set in new areas, according to the needs deriving from the new digital era and the development of a Digital Single Market for Europe.

As a result, a new agreement on the headquarters had to be signed between ENISA and the host country, namely Greece, so that the upgraded role of the Agency is supported.
