Member Description: The Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) is an all-inclusive, regionally owned and led cooperation framework. This framework engages RCC participants from the South East Europe (SEE), members of the international community and donors on subjects which are important and of interest to the SEE, with a view to promoting and advancing the European and Euro-Atlantic integration of the region. Within the framework of the general political guidelines set by the South-East European Cooperation Process (SEECP), the RCC works to develop and maintain a political climate of dialogue, reconciliation, tolerance and openness towards cooperation, with a view to enabling the implementation of regional programmes aimed at economic and social development to the benefit of the people in the region.
Focus on Specific Topics: Regarding cybersecurity, the Regional Cooperation Council’s work is focused on developing cybersecurity strategies and aligning legislation with the EU acquis in this area, including establishing national CSIRTs, building their capacities, strengthening regional cooperation and information and knowledge sharing, as well as establishing links with relevant counterparts and important international stakeholders including ENISA. Synergy and cooperation with other initiatives and projects that deliver cybersecurity capacity building and other services is also RCC’s priority in order to maximise effectiveness and optimise outputs.
