#RO2019EU / Briefing on cyber security for EU ambassadors, in the context of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU

On 27 March 2019, under the auspices of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU, H.E. Alexandru Grădinar, Ambassador of Romania, hosted a briefing with Thomas Lund-Sørensen, director of the Danish Center for Cyber Security, attended by the EU ambassadors in Denmark. The speaker offered an overall assessment of the Danish approach to cyber space and cyber threats and engaged in an exchange of views with the ambassadors on topics of mutual interest, such as the main cyber threats in the world and in Denmark, as well as Danish strategies and resources to counter cyber threats and build cyber resilience.

The participants appreciated the briefing as extremely timely in the current context of increasing interest in cyber security, manifested in both EU and NATO, as well as in Denmark, especially in the current context where interference in electoral processes and economic espionage are main topics in the public debate. Cyber security also features high on the agenda of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
