In this article “EU institutions have reinforced their fight against cyber threats by establishing the EU’s Computer Emergency Response Team, or CERT-EU, on a permanent basis. This decision follows a successful one-year pilot for the team, which drew positive assessments from clients and peers.

Vice-President Maros Sefcovic said: “The EU institutions, like any other major organizations, are frequently the target of information security incidents. CERT-EU is helping us to improve our protection against these threats. It is a very successful example of what the EU institutions can achieve when they work together. We want our CERT to be amongst the best, closely cooperating with the rest of the CERT community and contributing to cyber security for all.”
