Manon Le Blanc is a senior policy maker and cyber diplomat, working for the EU diplomatic service, the European External Action Service (EEAS). Over the last years, Manon has helped shape the EU’s policies on international cyber diplomacy issues and has been driving the work on the framework for a joint EU diplomatic response (the “cyberdiplomacy toolbox”), which allows the EU to use all diplomatic measures at its disposal, including restrictive measures, to respond to malicious cyber activities, and to coordinate attribution at EU level.
