The Europe is currently on the cusp of renewing its Internal Security Strategy (ISS) for 2015-2019.Over the last four years, it has succeeded in tackling a number of issues in this field. These include addressing several challenges, such as the adoption of the EU Cybersecurity Strategy; the creation of the European Cybercrime Centre (EC3); the expansion of the Global Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse online; the funding of the national Cybercrime Centres of Excellence and child pornography. In addition, there has been a commitment to increasing cooperation with third countries, in order to increase capacity building and adopt shared legal framework for cybercrime legislation, based on the Budapest Convention.
However, even with these accomplishments, one of the biggest concerns for the future for all stakeholders involved is the rapid pace with cybercrime and new cyber threats are developing., making it hard for policymakers to even attempt to keep up. Within this scenario, establishing veritable cybersecurity in Europe and tackling the plethora of emerging threats in this will require the EU to look inwardly.
