On Tuesday 29 March, the European Court of Auditors (ECA) will publish a special report on the cybersecurity preparedness of EU bodies.
EU institutions, bodies and agencies are attractive targets for potential cyber-attackers, particularly groups capable of executing highly sophisticated stealth attacks for cyber-espionage and other nefarious purposes. Such attacks can have significant political implications, harm the overall reputation of the EU, and undermine trust in its institutions. The audit examines whether the level of cybersecurity preparedness within EU bodies is commensurate with the growing threats.
The report and press release will be published on the ECA website
eca.europa.eu at 5.00 p.m. CET on Tuesday 29 March.

The ECA member responsible for this report is Bettina Jakobsen.
The ECA's special reports set out the results of its audits of EU policies and programmes or management topics related to specific budgetary areas. The ECA selects and designs these audit tasks to be of maximum impact by considering the risks to performance or compliance, the level of income or spending involved, forthcoming developments and political and public interest.
