SGS Becomes a Member of the Stakeholder Cybersecurity Certification Group (SCCG)

June 16, 2020

The SCCG is chiefly responsible for advising the European Commission (EC) and the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) on strategic issues regarding cybersecurity certification and assisting the EC in preparing the Union rolling work program.

On May 29, 2020, SGS was selected by the EC to become a member of SCCG. SGS, represented by Martin Schaffer, Global Head of Secure Products and Systems at SGS Digital Trust Services, is proud to support the EC and ENISA in SCCG activities to facilitate consultation with relevant stakeholders. As a member, SGS will:

  • Advise the EC on strategic issues regarding the European cybersecurity certification framework
  • Advise ENISA on general and strategic matters concerning tasks relating to market, cybersecurity certification and standardization
  • Assist the EC in the preparation of the Union rolling work program
  • Advise the EC and the European Cybersecurity Certification Group (ECCG) on the need for additional certification schemes not included in the Union rolling work program

SGS is already contributing to the European Cybersecurity Act through various initiatives like ECSO WG1 with a meta-scheme approach for evaluating IoT systems, as well as through EUROSMART, TIC-Council, AIOTI and others to generate a harmonized European Cybersecurity Certification Framework.

Together with related harmonized standards, it is of the highest importance to generate trust in safe and secure IoT devices, services, processes and, ultimately, systems. This will enable business continuity in all sectors and enhance trust across our global supply chains.

Together with the other SCCG members, SGS will continue to contribute to the evolution and harmonization of European cybersecurity requirements while investing in its SGS CyberLabs cybersecurity assessment capacity for global customers.
