Hybrid threats and the EU - State of play and future progress

On 2 October 2017, the EUISS and the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU organised a high-level conference on hybrid threats. During three panels focusing on the current state of play, cyber resilience and strategic communications, the conference encouraged debate about the efforts made by the EU to counter hybrid threats, the new proposals regarding cybersecurity and how strategic communications can foster European action to counter disinformation, radicalisation and extremism.
