Later this week, EU governments will be staging a large-scale cyberattack against multiple of the member states. The attacks will specifically target supply chains and will aim to push governments to coordinate public communications and a diplomatic response. This exercise will last around six weeks and its purpose is to test Europe’s stress resilience, strengthen government preparedness and cooperation and improve the overall joint response to such incidents. This simulation comes amid growing anxiety surrounding Russia’s plans in the Ukraine, especially after the SolarWinds Corp. hack was tied back to possible Russian intelligence.
While the EU already has appropriate tools to respond to cyber aggression, it has yet to develop a framework to coordinate a joint response between the member states.
