Revisiting the EU Cybersecurity Strategy: A Call for EU Cyber Diplomacy

HBI scientist PD Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann moderates the Online Expert Exchange of German Institute for International and Security Affairs – Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) and presents the new paper "EU-Strategie zur Cybesicherheit: Desiderat Cyberdiplomatie" (in German).

With the new Cybersecurity Strategy from December 2020, the European Union (EU) seeks to prevent, deter and respond to cyber incidents in Europe. However, the Union leaves confidence- and security-building through EU cyber diplomacy towards third countries largely underexplored.

Against this backdrop, the panel will discuss how the EU can enhance its cyber diplomacy and what its transatlantic implications are.

Date: Tuesday, 9 March 2021, 10h00-11h15 (CET) .The invitation is personal.

In the latest issue of SWP-Aktuell, PD Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann and Annegret Bendiek explain why the new EU cybersecurity strategy is too one-sided. The focus should not only be on deterrence and defence, but also on trust and security. They advocate for promoting cyber diplomacy in the European Union.
