Rapid technological changes in cyberspace pose new political, legal and technical challenges for the EU-USA cooperation. Given the high level of interdependency of the EU-USA bilateral relationship as well as the like-minded nature of their engagements at the international level, it is essential to ensure that the strength of this bilateral relationship does not become a vulnerability that both state and non-state actors might be willing to exploit. Consequently, there is a strong incentive to cooperate on both sides of the Atlantic.
This public event will focus on identifying policy areas that are particularly relevant for transatlantic cooperation, including the fight against cybercrime, use of cyberspace to undermine fair and free nature of our democracies, attribution and responses to cyber attacks, international law and norms for responsible state behavior, and cybersecurity research cooperation.
The EU Cyber Direct project supports EU cyber diplomacy efforts and consequently contributes to the development of a secure, stable and rights-based international order in cyberspace through extensive dialogues with strategic partners from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea, and the United States.
