Europol Signs Cybersecurity Agreement With EU Agencies

Written by  May 25, 2018

Europol this week signed two memorandums of understanding related to cybersecurity cooperation – one with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and one with the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA), the European Defence Agency (EDA), and the EU’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-EU).

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed on Wednesday between Europol, ENISA, EDA and CERT-EU establishes a cooperation framework on cyber security and cyber defense.

The agreement focuses on cyber exercises, education and training, exchange of information, strategic and administrative matters, and technical cooperation. The MoU also allows cooperation in other areas that may turn out to be important for all four organizations.

“EDA supports Member States in the development of their defence capabilities. As such, we also act as the military interface to EU policies,” said Jorge Domecq, chief executive of the EDA. “Today’s Memorandum of Understanding is an important step towards increased civil-military cooperation and synergies in the area of cyber security and cyber defence.”

“The EU institutions, bodies and agencies rely on the specialised skills and tools in threat intelligence and incident response of CERT-EU. But, we don’t maintain these capacities by acting alone. That is why acting together with our peers and partners in the other signatories to this Memorandum is so important,” stated Ken Ducatel, acting head of CERT-EU.

As for the MoU signed on Friday by Europol and the WEF, it focuses on establishing a cooperation framework whose goal is to make cyberspace safe for individuals, businesses and organizations.

The WEF and Europol recently announced the launch of a Global Cyber Security Centre located in Geneva, Switzerland.

As part of the new agreement, Europol and WEF will collaborate on the implementation of projects in common areas of interest, best practices, technical information on cybercrime, and statistical data.
