"Europe needs high quality, affordable and interoperable cybersecurity products and services. We call on Member States and all cybersecurity bodies to strengthen cooperation and pool their knowledge, information and expertise to increase Europe's cyber resilience. The milestone partnership on cybersecurity signed today with the industry is a major step," the press release quoted Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society Guenther Oettinger as saying.
"The aim of the partnership is to foster cooperation at early stages of the research and innovation process and to build cybersecurity solutions for various sectors, such as energy, health, transport and finance," the press release read.
The partnership is based on the provisions of the 2015 Digital Single Market strategy, the 2013 EU Cybersecurity strategy and the Network and Information Security Directive which is expected to be adopted by the European Parliament on Wednesday.
