Question reference: E-001005/2018

In its conclusions on malicious cyber activities of 16 April 2018, the Council expressed the EU's serious concern about the increased ability and willingness of third states and non-state actors to pursue their objectives by undertaking malicious cyber activities, and stated that the EU would continue to bolster its capabilities to address cyber threats. The EU firmly condemned the malicious use of information and communications technologies (ICTs), including in Wannacry and NotPetya, and stressed that the use of ICTs for malicious purposes is unacceptable(1).

Public attribution of the cyber attacks is based on all-source intelligence, and remains a sovereign political decision. The EU cyber diplomacy toolbox foresees the development of the relevant information sharing and consultation mechanisms among the Member States.

(1)7925/18.
