The European Commission presented a package of ideas this Friday to improve coordination between Member States in the field of security in order to achieve a security union. These include initiatives to tighten regulations to protect important infrastructures and measures against cybercrime such as identity theft and combating the terrorist threat.
“With this strategy, we are focusing on areas where the EU can help protect people across Europe by anticipating and addressing changing threats,” said Interior Commissioner Ylva Johansson.
Vice President for Security and Migration, Margatitis Schinas, has indicated that one of the keys will be to improve the protection and resilience of key infrastructures for the European Union, not only from traditional threats but also from others, that result from the new digital development. .
“It is time to overcome the false dichotomy between the online and offline worlds, between the digital and the physical world, and between internal and external security concerns and threats,” Schinas asked at a press conference near Brussels, accompanied by Johansson to present the initiative.
