Bulgarian Minister of Defense Discusses Cyber Security with EU Commissioner Maria Gabriel

The Bulgarian Minister of Defense Krasimir Karakachanov had an official meeting with the European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Maria Gabriel regarding the cyber-security capabilities of the country.

The meeting happened on October 23, 2017, and covered the upcoming Bulgarian chairmanship of the European Council in 2018. Gabriel informed Karakachanov on the recent measures for enforcing the Directive for Net and Information security in the EU. The Minister of Defense and the Commissioner discussed Bulgaria’s cybersecurity capabilities.

The meeting covered the rising threat of cyber-attacks, especially hybrid assaults that include multiple ways of infiltration. The two government officials stressed the importance of teamwork between the various government and even private-sector entities for preventing such threats.

Cybersecurity is something that’s often misunderstood and hard to combat. The Western mainstream media is still debating the specifics around the hacks that may have influenced the Presidential elections. Presently, most countries engage in cyber-related attacks and defense measures. Bulgaria shouldn’t fall behind on that new and dangerous front.
