Summary/Abstract: The eU Global strategy for foreign and security policy was adopted by the european council on june 28, 2016. it defines the common interests of the eU and its member states. it was based on the following objectives: security of citizens and territory, prosperity, democracy, global order, which are to lead to the creation of a credible, reactive and cohesive european Union. the principles which the european Union began to follow are unity, cooperation with others, responsi- bility, and deepening external partnerships. it is worth noting that cybersecurity in the european Union is a prerogative of the member states unlike cyberterrorism which is a shared competence. nevertheless, the eU has a key role to play in creating the conditions for the ability of member states to improve, cooperate and build trust. this article will attempt to demonstrate that the effectiveness of actions taken by european Union bodies in the field of cyber terrorism depends on the type of instruments at the disposal of the eU and the member states and the legal basis of the relevant regulations. the problem is that there are legal inaccuracies and interpretation discrepancies in the provisions of legal regulations at the eU level regarding the division of competences regarding cyberspace protection, which in fact lead to a delay in the establishment of mutual cooperation between the eU and the member states.
