Our civilization must deal with issues no other people have ever experienced. The world is more sensitive and interconnected than ever before, and our actions today may decide whether or not our civilization will still be here 100 years from now. It is from this perspective that the European Union chooses to tackle the issue of cybersecurity. Globally, the uncertainty around this new world of activity is understandable. The connections are complex and it is obvious no single government or organization has the capacity to answer all the problems we see today. This issue of The European Files assumes an explorative role in the subject of “cyberpower” and its consequences. Essentially, this new realm of activity must be properly defined. Our contributors are acutely aware of the need for a paradigm shift regarding our perspective on cyberdefence. Ultimately, the Internet transcends the European Union’s key operations as well as the lives of its citizens. Indeed, solutions will necessarily require a collaborative effort from a multitude of actors present in this magazine.
