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”

Press Release: Too much information – better ways to manage data

Humanity is generating ever-increasing amounts of data with genome sequencing and internet use, faster than our computers can handle. An EU-funded project is designing storage and analysis solutions which can help optimise transport networks and advance research into diseases and personalised medicine.

The emergence of cheaper, better technology in the field of molecular biology is enabling the sequencing of the genomes of millions of individual humans and other animal species. This generates enormous volumes of data, and the ability to analyse it is critical to understanding biological organisms and treating diseases.

Press Release: #DigitalYou – Digital Shopping

The Digital Single Market has made it easier for consumers and retailers to buy and sell online.

Since December 2018, online shops can no longer refuse you their goods or services based on your nationality or where you live. For example, if you are in Spain and want to buy a product that’s only available on the German version of a website, you will be able to do so. If you want to book a hotel room or rent a car in another EU country, the hotel or car rental company must offer you the same price as it would to a resident of that country, and you will no longer be re-directed to a website in your own country that does not have the same offer. This is one of the many ways shopping online has been made fairer and easier.

Press Release: #DigitalYou – Digital Trust

The Digital Single Market protects your privacy in the digital age. While you want to surf, email, shop and use credit cards, you also want to be sure that online communications are kept private and that personal information is not misused. New EU rules have strengthened your rights and given you more control over your personal data.
