Cyber has become a buzzword in Europe. Just as both the migration crisis and the terrorist threat seem to have abated, a series of high profile cyber attacks in 2017, allegedly from both state and non-state actors, struck targets including national health systems, banks and electoral campaigns. These attacks have raised big questions about the European Union’s attitude towards cyber security and its ability to deal with security breaches. The increasing incidence of online crime and the aggressive cyber tactics of countries like Russia and North Korea mean the bloc must raise its game in this area.
