We remain committed to working with our European and International partners to help shape cyber security measures, which is in the interests of our wider collective security. This is clearly outlined in the 'Political Declaration', which sets out a vision for close relationship in cyber security, including through participation of certain activities of ENISA, the EU Cybersecurity Agency and the NIS Cooperation Group. The EU 'Cybersecurity Act', which sets out a framework for the development of EU wide cyber security certification schemes reached political agreement in December and we will be working with the EU to consider the future implications for this legislation as part of this close relationship. The UK will continue to apply international cyber security standards, which the EU 'Cybersecurity Act' promotes the use of, because these are in the interests of better cyber security and are important to avoid market fragmentation globally.
