Europe's future security challenges

EU News 275/2014

Brussels, 20 June 2014

The growing trend of Europeans fighting abroad in groups affiliated with terrorism, the diversification of international organised crime, and the increased risk of large-scale cyber-attacks. These are some of the greatest challenges ahead for the EU in the security field, as identified by the European Commission in a report today. Solutions proposed include better police training across borders and deepened cooperation around investigations. The report also points out that more partnerships must be formed with civil society, industry and the research community, in order to achieve results in the fields of cybercrime and violent extremism.

The report released today assesses the progress made under each key area of the EU Internal Security Strategy (ISS) since 2010 and identifies possible ways to step up the EU's response to common threats such as organised crime, trafficking in human beings, terrorism, cybercrime and corruption.
