EU wants emergency team for cyber-attacks



Ukraine: EU deploys cyber rapid-response team

A cyber rapid-response team (CRRT) is being deployed across Europe, after a call for help from Ukraine.

The newly formed team of eight to 12 experts, from Lithuania, Croatia, Poland, Estonia, Romania, and the Netherlands, has committed to help defend Ukraine from cyber-attacks – remotely and on site in the country.

An official warned attacks were likely.

“We can see that cyber-measures are an important part of Russia’s hybrid toolkit,” the CRRT official said.

It comes after the UK and the US blamed Russia for cyber-attacks earlier this month that temporarily took a small number of Ukrainian banking and government websites offline.

The Lithuanian Ministry of Defence tweeted: “In response to Ukraine request, [we] are activating [a] Lithuanian-led cyber rapid-response team, which will help Ukrainian institutions to cope with growing cyber-threats. #StandWithUkraine.”

CRRTs are a European Union initiative to deepen defence and co-operation between member states.

They are said to be equipped with commonly developed cyber-toolkits designed to detect, recognise and mitigate cyber-threats.

An official said the team was “composed of different cyber-expertise, such as incident response, forensics, vulnerability assessment, to be able to react to a variety of scenarios”.

Russia has previously been accused of so-called hybrid warfare, combining cyber-attacks with traditional military activity, in Georgia and Crimea.
