Securing cyberspace has become one of the most pressing security challenges of the twenty-first century, impacting as it does on the everyday activity of governments, businesses and citizens alike. The cyber world and its associated technologies have, on the one hand, created social, cultural, economic and political opportunities for all. On the other hand, its borderless nature has fostered threats in the form of cyber attacks and cybercrime. The European Union (EU) is not immune to such threats, and produced its first Cybersecurity Strategy in 2013 to address more comprehensively the challenges that it faces. Drawing on the concepts of resilience and security governance, this book offers a novel framework for understanding and assessing how far the EU has progressed in embedding the necessary conditions for a resilient and secure ecosystem to emerge in Europe and beyond. It asks how far the EU has facilitated movement to an effective culture of cybersecurity that will allow it to fulfil its own ambitions; promote its values; and exert its influence in a dynamic global order that is increasingly reliant on digital interoperability and connectivity.
