Summary/Abstract: Technology is evolving fast and the associated cyber threats, even more. Their diversity and the attackers’ skills set up real challenges in identifying best preventive measures against cyber-attacks. If taken into consideration the classification that defines five main categories of cyber-attacks – cybercrime, cyber war, cyber terrorism, cyber espionage and hacktivism, at least three of them represent a direct threat to national security. This is one of the reasons for which every country needs legislation in addressing these threats. European Union Member States have issued at least, one national cybersecurity strategy. Given the cyberspace evolution, some of these documents already reached third edition. The article represents a comparative analysis on the cybersecurity strategies of EU members. Even if they benefit from the same guidelines, the documents are different, from one state to another, based on preliminary analysis of each national cyber context. This generates diverse approaches related to priorities, scopes, objectives, and also sets of measures and fields of action. The aim of the article is identifying different approaches of the cybersecurity field and how Member States countries complied to EU regulations. One of the key elements of the strategies constitutes ways to integrate cybersecurity in education system, as a measure meant to raise awareness among internet users and also to increase the cybersecurity culture level of the society.
