The EU to launch a rapid response cyber security team

The European Union is to launch a new cyber unit to respond to cyber attacks, as outlined by POLITICO.

The plan is to set up a platform for cyber security teams to coordinate responses and share resources.

The unit would coordinate existing work between cyber agencies across EU nations, some of which have already created joint cyber response teams under the EU’s defence cooperation scheme.

Currently, most EU countries face cyber attacks on their own and the capability of each country to handle cyber threats varies widely.

The unification of cyber security teams could be hugely beneficial in preventing large and small attacks across the EU, countries with smaller cyber security budgets would benefit the most from this.

Working together to pre-emptively combat cyber-attacks is something the NEBRC encourages, we offer training to those with varying knowledge about cyber security.

On our website, you can also find a selection of resources tailored for organisations, as well as our FREE core membership option, which puts many of our resources right at your fingertips.
