Militarisation of cybersecurity network splits MEPs

A disagreement over whether a planned EU cybersecurity research and advice network should work on military activities is dividing the European Parliament’s research committee.

The committee debated a draft report on the EU’s planned Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology, and Research Competence Centre and an associated network of national centres on 14 January.

The initiative would launch fully after 2020, with pilot activities going on in the meantime.

A second phase encompassing defence could facilitate information sharing and security assessment.
