The “massive and co-ordinated” hack on the election campaign of Emmanuel Macron, the Dutch decision to count votes by hand to prevent cyber-interference, the DDoS attack that rendered 100 state web servers useless via an attack on Luxembourg’s state-owned IT operator CTIE, the successful WannaCry attack that put its ransom demands on Deutsche Bahn screen in stations throughout Germany  – all these and many more put Europe at the heart of the global cyber battle.

Brussels itself has seen a 20 per cent rise in “more and more dangerous” cyber attacks on EU servers in the past year and the EU commission aims to embed cybersecurity in future policy, especially with regard to new technologies such as connected cars, smart grids and the Internet of Things (loT).
