EU Commissioner makes his views felt on EU network security
Network and information security has become increasingly important with growing usage of the Internet and other information and communication technologies.
In today's society, much depends on networks and information systems. Additional requirements for security will rapidly increase as networking and computing develop further and electronic communications become part of all aspects of our daily lives. For instance broadband connections offer people the possibility to be "always on". This, of course, increases the vulnerability of systems and multiplies the probability of some sort of cyber-attack. Enhanced security is therefore a key element for the success of broadband.
