Strengthening the EU’s Cyber Defence Capabilities

Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) has published a report on Europe's cyber defence capabilities, titled Strengthening the EU’s Cyber Defence Capabilities, The CEPS Task Force identified a clear EU-wide interest for greater coordination and cooperation in this space. After a comparative analysis of alternative scenarios, the Task Force concluded in favour of creating an EU Cyber Defence Agency with executive competencies and therefore, the ability to develop and utilise strategic and operational capabilities at the EU level. This would mark a critical step towards a more effective and collaborative approach to enhancing cyber security and resilience in the EU.
