Publication: Sarah Backman on EU’s cyber security strategy

In the latest volume from SIPRI on cyber security and critical infrastructure protection from national, regional and international perspectives, our consultant Sarah Backman contributed with a publication on EU’s cyber security strategy.

Backman explores the unique challenge of the EU working to integrate cybersecurity regulatory bodies and standards, highlighting the importance of information security as part of the construct of critical infrastructure.
