The E.U and the U.S. are reaffirming their commitment to fighting cyberterrorism together.
The European Union and the United States are reaffirming their commitment to fighting cyberterrorism together at the Ministerial Meeting on Justice and Home Affairs hosted by the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in Bucharest.
Both sides took stock in their cooperation and address common security threats. U.S. Attorney General, William Barr, and Acting Deputy Secretary for Homeland Security, David Pekoske, both representing the U.S., discussed security threats to aviation, drones, and the use of the internet for cyberterrorism.
Participants committed to work together to maintain a safe, open, and secure cyberspace, and exchanged views on how to best address growing cyber threats.
Recognizing that the deployment of 5G network infrastructure needs to be addressed as a matter of priority, as it might pose significant security risks and impact the ability of law enforcement agencies to take effective action against crime, they committed to use existing channels likeJustice and Home Affairs meetings, to pursue their exchanges on assessing and managing 5G and supply chain security risks.
The delegation agreed to meet again in Washington, D.C. later this year.
