Cyberspace security and the protection of critical infrastructures: The European digital agenda and national resilience

In a digital and connected world, hybrid threats exploit the dependence of individuals, organizations and States on the internet and cyberspace. Critical infrastructures, also operating in a networked environment are, today, appealing targets for cyber-attacks of a high disruptive and destructive power. New threats, exploiting the vulnerabilities of an information age society, raise new social risks and require a concerted response, both at national and international levels.

L’Europe de la cybersécurité au prisme de la souveraineté, des flux et de l’intégration. Trois lectures distinctes d’une « sécurité collective et collaborative »

L’objectif de cet article est de présenter une lecture conceptuelle de la cybersécurité européenne voulue comme « collective et collaborative ». En prenant appui sur ces théories, il est possible de dégager trois lectures distinctes : une sécurité par « le bas » en adoptant une approche par la souveraineté nationale, une sécurité transversale en privilégiant une approche par les flux transnationaux et une sécurité par « le haut » en optant en faveur d’une approche par l’intégration européenne.

Cyber Observatory – European Cybersecurity Policy

The leaks by Edward Snowden in 2013 of details of the surveillance by US and allied intelligence agencies of private communications have prompted debate about the relationship between the right to security and the right to privacy, and the controls that should exist on official surveillance of private communications, in particular of communications generated in another state. This EuroDefense paper recommends action to be taken on these issues on the European level, and includes a proposal for enhanced collective defence against cyber threats.
