Overview Edit

The EU-US Working Group on Cybersecurity and Cybercrime, created by the EU-US Summit in November 2010, has been conducting important work in the area of cybersecurity and cybercrime. It is divided into four expert sub-groups that work on (i) [[cyber incident management[[, (ii) public-private partnerships (including market access barriers), (iii) awareness raising, and (iv) cybercrime.

The Working Group has fostered close cooperation between the EU and the US on issues of cyber security and cybercrime, with concrete outcomes including the 2011 EU-US Cyber-incident table-top exercise, public-private workshops on industrial control systems and smart grids and on the involvement of intermediaries in awareness raising, the 2012 launch of the Global Alliance against Sexual Abuse Online, the signature of an EU-US joint declaration on making the Internet a better place for children, and the work on enhancing the security of domain names and Internet Protocol addresses. Current priorities include further work on awareness raising, standards for risk management, managing botnet attacks, the promotion of the Budapest Convention (on cybercrime), coordinating positions in international fora and joint guidelines for on-line tracking for commercial purposes.
