Der „Cybersecurity Act“ der EU-Kommission ist scheinheilig

Die Europäische Kommission legt heute ihren angekündigten „Cybersecurity Act“ vorg. Im Rahmen dieses Maßnahmenpaketes zur Cybersicherheit soll unter anderem die bereits existierende Agentur für Netz- und Informationssicherheit (ENISA) zu einer Cybersicherheitsbehörde ausgebaut werden. Hierzu kommentiert der europapolitische Sprecher der Linksfraktion im Bundestag, Andrej Hunko:

The West attempts hybrid resistance

The EU and NATO are training for their joint rapid response in the event of a crisis with three coordinated exercises. The simulated threat comes from Russia, hackers, the caliphate, immigrants and globalisation critics

By Matthias Monroy

On 1 September the European Union and NATO will start their shared "EU Parallel and Coordinated Exercise 2017" (EU PACE17). This is according to a Council Document published online by the British civil rights organisation Statewatch. The two alliances will test their crisis management structures over six weeks.

NATO is responsible for leading the exercise, the section organised by it is referred to as "NATO CMX17". The NATO is also responsible for escalating hypothetical scenarios with daily "injections". This also incorporates the "EU CYBRID 2017" short cyber exercise, which will see EU defence ministers test the political reaction to cyber-attacks on 7 September in Tallinn, Estonia.

Neuer Kalter Krieg? Russland und der Westen


Free Joomla Extensions

Die Beziehungen des Westens mit der Sowjetunion und Russland war in den letzten Jahrzehnten wechselhaft. Spätestens mit der NATO-Osterweiterung gaben die USA und ihre Verbündeten eine neue Marschrichtung vor. Zwischenzeitlich hatte der russische Präsident Putin mehrmals Entspannung signalisiert, etwa bei seiner Rede im Bundestag 2001 und bei der Vermittlung zur Vernichtung der syrischen Atomwaffen. Trotzdem hat die NATO ihre militärische Präsenz an der Ostgrenze zu Russland massiv ausgebaut. Wer bedrängt hier eigentlich wen?

Database on “European extremists”: how is the plan pursued since 2001 supposed to function?

After each major summit protest, there are calls for a European “troublemakers” database to be established. Centralised data storage at EU level or decentralised networking of national systems would be conceivable options. For a number of reasons, it has not been possible to set up a database of this kind since the turn of the millennium. The governing coalition in Germany has now announced a new initiative to this end following the G20 Summit in Hamburg.

Cooperation on summit events between European security authorities has been running like clockwork for more than 20 years. Police and intelligence services have exchanged information on threats and “individuals who pose a terrorist threat”, have assisted each another with personnel and equipment and seconded liaison officers. Shortly before such summits, the Schengen Agreement is partially suspended and border controls reintroduced while travel bans are imposed on undesirable protesters.

New data retention planned for border crossings of all European Union citizens

The European Union could soon save the date and place of each crossing of the EU’s external borders. Travellers’ identification documents would be read out and their biographical data saved along with information regarding border crossings. Police forces and intelligence services would have access to this data.

By Matthias Monroy

The European Commission published the final report of the High-Level Expert Group on Information Systems and Interoperability in May. According to this document, European border authorities could soon – unbeknownst to the travellers – be able to trawl through the travel routes of all nationals of EU member states. Alongside their biographical data, the system to be set up will log the direction in which borders are crossed. This new data repository on border crossings at all land, sea and air borders might form part of the Schengen Information System II (SIS II), which is the largest police and border authority database. Preference is being given to the establishment of an entirely new database, however.
