The European Commission plans to publish a European cybersecurity strategy focusing on preparedness, prevention, and response, as well as a permanent Computer Emergency Response Team.

European Union funding also is being used for a variety of pan-European projects aimed at improving cybersecurity. For example, Nessos focuses on fostering the design and development of secure software and systems for the future Internet. The goal is to ensure that engineers and developers address security issues at the beginning of system analysis and design. SecureChange involves researchers from nine European countries collaborating to develop the methods, techniques, and tools needed to make the software life cycle more efficient, flexible, and more secure. The Aniketos project concentrates on bringing security and trust to heterogeneous environments by developing new technology, tools, and security services to support the design-time creation and run-time dynamic behavior of secure composite services. The TECOM project has helped bring trusted computing to embedded systems by developing technology that can run everything from smartphones to electricity meters.
