Commission presents security strategy to tackle Europe’s evolving threat landscape | EURACTIV.com


Better cybersecurity standards for critical infrastructure, doubling down on tackling terrorism and organized crime, and preparing the bloc for emerging threats in “real and digital” environments, dominated the European Commission’s new EU Security Union strategy, presented on Friday (24 July).

“With the new strategy, we are connecting all the dots to build a real security ecosystem,” Margaritis Schinas, Commission VP for Promoting European Way of Life told reporters in Brussels.

Over the last four years, the EU has linked its range of security databases together and has given law enforcement agencies wider access to EU data, yet critics have pointed out the lack of coordination between departments and institutions.

“It is time to overcome the false dichotomy between online and offline, between digital and physical and between internal and external security concerns and threats,” Schinas said.
