The European Union is stepping up to the plate, releasing a Cyber Defence Policy to, in its words, "boost EU cyber defence capabilities and strengthen coordination and cooperation between the military and civilian cyber communities." However, bolstering cyber defenses across a collection of countries, home to 450 million people and spanning four million square kilometers, is no easy feat.
