Julian King, European Commissioner in charge of the Security Union, presented his plans to equip Europe with the right tools to deal with cyber attacks, the European Commission are proposing a wide-ranging set of measures to build strong cybersecurity resilience in the EU. The Commission are proposing a European Cybersecurity Research and Competence Centre (to be set up in the course of 2018). Working with Member States, it will help develop and roll out the tools and technology needed to keep up with an ever-changing threats and make sure our defences are as state-of-the-art as the weapons that cyber-criminals use. It will complement capacity-building efforts in this area at EU and national level. There will also be a blueprint for how Europe can respond quickly, operationally and in unison when a large-scale cyber-attack strikes. The recommendation asks EU countries and EU institutions to establish an EU Cybersecurity Crisis Response and test this through cyber and other crisis management exercises.
