Time to increase EU internal security

Monday, 22 November, 2010

The Commission adopted today the EU Internal Security Strategy in Action, with 41 concrete actions to be carried out in the coming four years. "EU internal security has traditionally been following a silo mentality, focusing on one area at a time. Now we take a common approach on how to respond to the security threats and challenges ahead", said EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmström.

The strategy is targeting five areas: organised crime, terrorism, cybercrime and cyber security, border management, and crises and disasters. The document is available below. See also the press release and the memo.
