Cyber Rapid Response Teams (CRRTs) will allow the Member States to help each other to ensure a higher level of cyber resilience and collectively respond to cyber incidents. CRRTs could be used to assist other Member States, EU Institutions, CSDP operations as well as partners. CRRTs will be equipped with a commonly developed deployable cyber toolkits designed to detect, recognise and mitigate cyber threats. Teams would be able to assist with training, vulnerability assessments and other requested support. Cyber Rapid Response Teams would operate by pooling participating Member States experts.

During the first year of the project, all participating Member States signed the Declaration of Intent, Political and Legal Memos detailing decision making process have been issued and the first common exercise has been organised. The project has already reached operational capability with the Netherlands being the 1st rotating Member State for 2019 by offering national cyber rapid response team.

In 2019, it is foreseen to finish the draft of Memorandum of Understanding, conduct two cyber exercise (procedural and operational), finalise standing operating procedures and develop cyber toolkit concept.
