On 26 October PEGA committee has organized a hearing on 'Big tech and spyware II'. This hearing was a continuation of the hearing on 'Big tech and Spyware' of 14 June 2022 and focused on the response of the large platforms to attacks and abuse by spyware companies and entities using their technology. It allowed us not only to deepen our understanding of the work of big tech companies, but also to discuss with European actors on the current IT cybersecurity landscape.
