EU Plans Rules to Bolster Cyber-Attack Defenses in Bloc

Dec. 18 (Bloomberg) -- European Union regulators plan guidelines for how governments should bolster defenses from Internet-based attacks, the European Commission said today.

The Brussels-based commission “will deliver a strategy and proposed directive to establish a common minimum level of preparedness at national level, including an online platform to prevent and counter cross-border cyber incidents, and incident reporting requirements,” the agency said in a statement on its priorities for the digital industry in 2013 and 2014.
