 Cyber Security: A Transatlantic Perspective

Evening Debate

22 March 2010, Bibliothèque Solvay


On both sides of the Atlantic, policymakers are increasingly concerned that cyber-attacks represent a serious threat. The 2007 “cyberwar” against Estonia has been mirrored in the U.S. by repeated penetrations of secure government and military networks. But how closely are they working together to improve their defences? What steps are being taken by NATO and the EU to coordinate national cyber-defences, and what scope is there for private-public partnerships? In light of the transatlantic tensions created by some counter-terrorism measures, what is the outlook for a common agenda on cyber security?
