Question for written answer  E-004762/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Christine Anderson (ID)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Cyber Polygon – ‘cyber pandemic’ simulation by the World Economic Forum

On 9 July 2021, the World Economic Forum and its partners simulated a global cyber attack. The training exercise, being held for the third time this year, involved a simulated large-scale cyber attack on a company’s supply chain and the real time response thereto, with the scenario being referred to as a cyber pandemic(1).

1. Is the Commission aware of the results and findings of the above mentioned simulation and, if so, how does it view them and what significance do they have for the Commission’s work?

2. To what extent did Commission representatives participate or were/have been informed or otherwise involved?

3. What is the Commission’s assessment of the impact of such a scenario on the Member States and on Member States’ businesses and citizens, as well as on the secure use of digital currencies as a substitute for cash?
