Fast-paced technological changes and increased complexity of cyber threats are producing new opportunities and challenges in the field of cybersecurity. Amid these developments the European Union (EU) and the United States have identified synergies and acknowledged shared interests in issues such as the application of existing international law to cyberspace, strengthening cyber resilience, and supporting cyber capacity building in partner countries. On September 10, 2018, during the EU–U.S. Cyber Dialogue, the EU and United States will continue discussions for cooperation on these issues.
The meeting on "Transatlantic Perspectives on Cyber Diplomacy" will update the participants on the recent developments in the bilateral and global conversations about cyber diplomacy. The discussants will also elaborate on current challenges and opportunities for EU–U.S. cooperation in the field of cybersecurity.
This meeting is organized in the context of the EU Cyber Direct project, which supports EU cyber diplomacy efforts and consequently contributes to the development of a secure, stable and rules-based international order in cyberspace through extensive dialogues with strategic partners from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea, the United States, as well as regions of Latin America and the Asia-Pacific.
