De L’Europe, Nieuwe Doelenstraat 2-14, 1012 CP, Amsterdam, Netherlands
The EU-U.S. Working Group on Cybersecurity and Cyber Crime (EU-U.S. WG) was established in the context of the EU-US Summit of 20 November 2010 held in Lisbon to “tackle new threats to the global networks upon which the security and prosperity of our free societies increasingly depend”. The EU-US WG will “address a number of specific priority areas and will report progress within a year”.
Objectives of the work shop are to bring EU and U.S. relevant communities together to share experiences and information on how to strengthen cyber security of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and smart grid, and to explore areas for specific further cooperation. The workshop should particularly investigate benefits from transatlantic collaboration.
ICS and the smart grids are two of these priority areas identified by the EU-U.S. WG.
