Speech: Commissioner King’s remarks at the Aspen Institute dinner in Berlin: Security Cooperation – the power of likeminded nations working together

16 May 2019

“In this time, we have been faced by a range of security issues. We have worked to tackle terrorism, by closing down the space in which terrorists operate – cutting down on their access to money, weapons and explosives, and making it harder for them to travel around – by building our resilience to attacks and our ability to recover from them, and by tackling the radicalisation and online terrorist content that fuel extremism.

We have undertaken efforts to combat the growing and evolving array of cyber and cyber-enabled threats, by putting in place a new EU cybersecurity strategy in order to build our resilience, strengthen our deterrence and support Member States in cyber defence; and then by working to strengthen election security and tackle disinformation online, including by working with Member States and the big internet platforms”

Speech: Commissioner King’s keynote speech at the Aspen Institute Berlin Cybersecurity Forum

16 May 2019

“The range of cyber and cyber-enabled threats is expanding and evolving. Cyberattacks are growing both in number and in sophistication, touching on all parts of the economy, governance and our daily lives, affecting individuals, major business and critical infrastructure. And over the past year or so, we have seen the growth of the more pernicious, politically-driven kinds of security threat posed by disinformation and attempted interference in our democratic processes. Finally, we need to think carefully about how the EU can ensure the security of its critical digital infrastructure in the coming years, including the incoming 5G networks.”

Press Release: Europe votes 2019 – Data protection is a prerequisite for fair and democratic elections

The European parliamentary elections are increasingly in the spotlight as the polls of 23-26 May approach. In the face of ongoing political turbulence, it is important that the EU continue to lead the way in promoting a healthy civic society through a robust election process.

Data protection is essential for a resilient democracy, more than ever in this digital age; it underpins the democratic process and trust in our institutions by ensuring safe and secure voting and respect for individual rights.
