EU and US to strengthen cybersecurity collaboration

05/02/2024 | European Commission

During a recent trip to Washington D.C, Thierry Breton, Commissioner for Internal Market of the European Union and Alejandro N. Mayorkas, US Secretary of Homeland Security, issued a joint statement emphasising the need for cooperation on cyber resilience and promoting global cybersecurity. 

The EU-US Joint Cyber Safe Products Action Plan was discussed, which outlines steps for further collaboration between the Commission and relevant US regulatory agencies to explore mutual recognition on cybersecurity requirements for consumer products. The initiative builds on the EU Cyber Resilience Act framework and the proposed US cybersecurity labelling programme Cyber Trust Mark Act

In addition, the two sides agreed to bolster cooperation in critical infrastructure protection, crisis management, software security, post-quantum cryptography, and cybersecurity of artificial intelligence under the EU-US cyber dialogue. 

The EU also announced its decision to join the US-led global Counter Ransomware Initiative policy statement, pledging not to pay ransom to cybercriminals.
