The European Commission proposed creating the European Network and 
Information Security Agency to provide advice for the 15 EU members on 
cybersecurity issues. The agency is scheduled to begin operating in January 
2004, at a site to be chosen by the governments of the 15 member states. 
The commission has set aside $26 million to fund the agency over the next 
five years, with additional funds planned to support the 10 new member 
states expected to join in 2004. The agency will assist EU members' own 
cybercrime authorities, specifically computer emergency response teams. The 
increased coordination among member states is expected to benefit the EU as 
a whole in achieving a high level of security for Internet use.
