EU to pool and network its cybersecurity expertise – Council agrees its position on cybersecurity centres

The EU is stepping up its capacity to protect Europe against ever-increasing cyber threats by creating a new structure to pool and network its expertise in cybersecurity research, technology and industrial development.

Today, the Council’s Permanent Representatives Committee granted the Romanian presidency a mandate to start talks with the European Parliament on establishing a top knowledge base for cybersecurity called the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Centre and setting up a Network of National Coordination Centres. Together, these structures will help secure the digital single market and increase the EU’s autonomy in the area of cybersecurity.
