New EU cyber platform

The European Security and Defence College will in September launch a cyber platform to coordinate education, training, evaluation and exercises (ETEE) in the field of cyber security/defence across Europe.

Marking ‘Safer Internet Day’ on 6 February 2018, the EU Member States tasked the European Security and Defence College (ESDC) with managing a platform for education, training, evaluation and exercises (ETEE) in the field of cyber security/defence.

The main task of the ETEE platform within the ESDC is the coordination of cyber training and education for EU Member States. The existing training will be harmonised and standardised and new courses will close the gaps between training needs and training activities. These efforts will be jointly undertaken by various stakeholders, including several centres of excellence and partner organisations.

The cyber platform will reach its initial operating capability by 1 September 2018. The process of recruiting three seconded national experts with specific knowledge in the field of cyber security will be launched in the coming days. The full operational capability of the platform is planned to be announced in April 2019.
