Cyberattacks on EU institutions are escalating “dramatically,” with major occurrences more than doubling between 2018 and 2021. The European Court of Auditors’ warning applies to various EU institutions. Cybersecurity has risen to prominence on Europe’s political agenda in recent years due to assaults on EU member states such as Germany. According to European auditors, the sensitive data collected by EU entities makes them tempting targets for hackers: They attribute the “dramatic rise in severe occurrences” to remote employment and a lack of finance. The auditors urge the EU to enact legislation establishing uniform cybersecurity standards for all its institutions.
