La demande est réussie.

Dear European External Action Service,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- Any communication between hospitals or health authorities in the European Union and the European External Action Service, since the start of the year (January 1st 2020). This could include but is not limited to, e-mails, text messages, basis documents, memos or drafts.

- Any documentation transmitted between EU member states and the EEAS since the start of the year (January 1st 2020), detailing information on national cyber attacks, cyber threats, weaknesses of cybersecurity systems, across EU health bodies or hospitals.

- Any notification communicated from any public body within the EU to the EEAS, concerning cyberattacks to hospitals or health authorities in the EU, and any follow up communication between the EEAS and the specific body in such cases.

This request extends to any information that the EEAS holds in relation any of the above points, including information that may have been deemed short-lived or unimportant.

Yours faithfully,

Samuel Stolton

It is to my regret that the above request is long overdue. Your authority has had ample time to respond to my request, and under EU law such a response should have been filed by now.
