A range of new plans to tackle cyber-crime has been approved by the 
European Union, the U.S and NATO over the past three days.

The European Commission announced on Monday its proposals to develop 
three systems to raise the level of security for citizens and businesses 
in cyberspace.

An E.U. cybercrime centre to be established by 2013 will coordinate 
cooperation between member states, E.U. institutions and international 
partners, while an European information sharing and alert system, also 
planned for 2013, will facilitate communication between rapid-response 
teams and law-enforcement authorities. The Commission also wants to 
create a network of Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) by 2012, 
with a CERT in every E.U. country.

However, Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmström was keen to play 
down concerns that these systems would lead to the creation of yet 
another citizens' information database, saying that no such database 
would be set up and that the aim of the new bodies is to manage the flow 
of information to prevent cyber-attacks, not to store it.
