Since 2020, the cyber threat situation has changed enormously – new global political factors, changed national policies, but also new attack vectors have contributed to this. How is the European Union responding to these challenges and can the political and regulatory measures taken and planned be sufficient to deal with the escalating threat situation in the digital space?

How the digital transformation is changing our lives

Our society relies more and more on information and operational technologies. Examples include water, energy, heat and cooling supply, communications, healthcare, production and processing of goods, transportation, national security, banking, research and education, and food production.

What all these areas have in common is that they make intensive use of networked distributed computer systems. These systems can be attacked in many ways. This is no longer just a problem for computer “pros” because computer systems are essential to all of us. The effects of “cyber-attacks” range from power outages to the collapse of the health care or banking sectors.
