We need the EU to found a publicly-owned enterprise that will hire scientists, programmers, hackers and software designers and then develop a freeware anti-virus/anti-malware program and distribute it to all citizens of Euope for free!! This way, citizens that cant afford to pay for commercial software will be able to obtain cyber protection for free by getting the EU-funded protection software. It's like "cyber healthcare" welfare. If physical healthcare is a right and is provided for free by the EU, why shouldn't the right to cyber "healthcare"-protection be provided for free? In addition, we need more hawkish measures. We need to drastically increase our overall military spending. Along with it, we need to greatly increase funding for counter-terrorism, counterespionage and counterintelligence services and clandestine organisations, with emphasis on their "cyber features".
