“If we want to be able to fight against these cyber threats, we need to be pragmatic, to exchange, to innovate - hackers innovate every day, we need to be more innovative than they are", he says. To achieve this, he emphasises the importance of joining forces on a European scale: “I am delighted with this collaboration with Luxembourg, it is a great premiere, it is the first country to have contacted us to build this European satellite together”.
