ENISA – European Network Information Security Agency
Head of Secure Infrastructure and Services Unit
Dr. Evangelos OUZOUNIS is the head of ENISA’s Secure Infrastructure and Services Unit.
His unit manages ENISA’s contribution to the NIS Directive implementation and over the years has developed good practices for several Critical Information Infrastructures (e.g. telecoms, energy, aviation, health, finance and ICS SCADA).
Dr Ouzounis manages within ENISA the area of IoT security and Smart Infrastructures. In that context, his team developed baseline security requirements for IoT and numerous good practices for smart cars, industry 4.0, smart airports and smart health.
Finally, Dr. Ouzounis has developed, together with all EU Telecom Regulators (NRAs), the first ever pan European incident reporting mechanism for the telecom sector (article 13 a). Since then his unit has published several annual reports on root causes of reported incidents affecting the telecom sector. His unit now develops a similar mechanism for the trust service providers in the context of eIDAS Regulation (article 19).
Prior to his position at ENISA, Dr. Ouzounis worked several years at the European Commission (DG Connect) and co-founded Electronic Commerce Centre of Competence (ECCO) at Fraunhofer FOKUS (Berlin, Germany). In that context he has managed more than 15 international R&D projects (e.g. 3G, intelligent networks), served for the EU Commission as evaluator of EU funded projects and chaired numerous international recognised academic conferences.
Dr. Ouzounis holds a Ph.D from the Technical University of Berlin on the Resilience and Security of Distributed systems and a Master in Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Patras, Greece.
