IT-solutions in EU development policy
In order to tackle cyber threats at global level, international cooperation and assistance in cyber capacity building play an essential role in enabling States to secure information and communication technology and their peaceful use. The Council highlights the need to support national and regional exchange and cyber capacity building and adopt strategies and legislation for cyber security and against cybercrime, as part of a comprehensive set of policy, legislative and operational measures, including actions to protect critical infrastructures, to counter violent extremist and terrorist use of the Internet, human trafficking, as well as child sexual abuse and sexual exploitation online, in accordance with international human rights law. The Council also highlights the need to support the establishment of national computer emergency response teams and/or computer security incident response teams in partner countries. Equally, the Council backs the efforts of the European Commission to promote the fight against online hate speech on the basis of ethnicity, ideology, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
