EU: JAIEX: This stands for the external aspect of Justice and Home Affairs policies and is a new influence on internal policy as well as another "backdoor" for hidden US interventions: Recommendations for JAIEX working methods (pdf).

"Review of activities in the EU-US Cyber working party - information by the Commission

The Commission informed the group of the main activities so far in the working party that had been set up by the EU-US Summit of 30 November 2010. A draft work paper was issued on 14 April 2011. Four working groups had been set up, of which three are related to cybersecurity (computer incident, public/private sector cooperation, awareness raising) and one related to cybercrime. The Commission coordinated its efforts with the U.S Department of Homeland Security for the realisation of a timeframe for the upcoming joint exercise which would be held in Brussels in November 2011. In the fight against cybercrime 3 priorities have been chosen:
