Europe’s Cybersecurity Collaboration Questioned

    Jun 10, 2014

    The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security recently carried out its largest and most complex online police exercise, Cyber Europe 2014, which involved 200 organizations and 400 cybersecurity professionals. However, doubts were being raised about the effectiveness of the collaborative approach it tested.

    According to the French news agency Agence France-Presse article on, critics said rounding up a variety of normally secretive national security agencies and hoping they spend the rest of the year sharing information was wishful thinking.

    "You can carry out all of the exercises you want, but cybersecurity really comes down to your ability to monitor, and for that, national agencies need to speak to each other all the time," information security expert Bart Preneel said.
