C3602 IT Security Plans

Properly planning security is key to achieve EU goals

European Institutions develop and manage more and more complex, customized and interconnected information systems. They are also more often targeted by various cyber-attacks.

Proper security planning has never been so evident for EU institutions, especially when it comes to compliance with Decision C(2006) – 3602 issued by European Commission, hence its name.

Why planning security?

Next to the compliance with the requirements of Commission’s Decision 3602, defining that all information systems have a documented IT Security Plan, security planning has several benefits for EU institutions:

  • Plan and apply cost effective security measures based on the business risk exposure while preserving EU institutions assets
  • Align the IT security effort and investment with business and strategic priorities of the EU institution
  • Overcome the complexity to make decision on information security investment
  • Use the achievement of compliance with the Commission’s Decision 3602 to prepare for compliance work with other information security standards and frameworks
  • Increase the transparency of IT security and compliance efforts
