EU called on malicious cyber activities halted

(VOVWORLD) - The European Union has condemned malicious cyber activities targeting essential operators in its members and international partners, including in the healthcare sector, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said in a statement that any attempt to hamper the ability of critical infrastructures is unacceptable, adding all perpetrators must immediately refrain from conducting such irresponsible and destabilizing actions, which can put people’s lives at risk. He called on the entire world to stand united in this global fight against the virus because it is a matter of humanity and universally shared values.

Mr. Borrell said the EU and its Member States share a common vision of the cyber threats and are resolute to prevent, discourage, deter and respond to them, notably through the continued exchange of information and incident handling cooperation, as well as the use of their framework for a joint EU diplomatic response to malicious cyber activities.
