WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US and EU officials intend to expand collaboration on international cyber security issues at a summit meeting in Washington, DC on Monday, the US Department of State said in a press release.
"The second annual meeting of the US-EU Cyber Dialogue… will reinforce and broaden cooperation on cyber issues," the release stated on Friday.
The cyber dialogue agenda, according to the release, will include discussions on international security in cyberspace, internet governance and capacity building.
In recent years, US businesses and government agencies have fallen victim to numerous cyberattacks from a variety of actors with criminal, economic or political motivations. In April, the Office of Personnel Management acknowledged that hackers have compromised the personal data of 21 million former and current US government employees.
