NATO’s New Strategic Concept and the Cyberspace

Excerpts from NATO’s “Active Engagement, Modern Defence“:

12. Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent, more organised and more costly in the damage that they inflict on government administrations, businesses, economies and potentially also transportation and supply networks and other critical infrastructure; they can reach a threshold that threatens national and Euro-Atlantic prosperity, security and stability. Foreign militaries and intelligence services, organised criminals, terrorist and/or extremist groups can each be the source of such attacks

19. We will ensure that NATO has the full range of capabilities necessary to deter and defend against any threat to the safety and security of our populations. Therefore, we will:

* develop further our ability to prevent, detect, defend against and recover from cyber-attacks, including by using the NATO planning process to enhance and coordinate national cyber-defence capabilities, bringing all NATO bodies under centralized cyber protection, and better integrating NATO cyber awareness, warning and response with member nations

    1. Η μπάλα έχει όντως ξεφύγει, αλλά αυτά τα δύο γεγονότα δε συνδέονται, παρά μόνο στο ευρύτερο cybersecurity frenzy που στήνεται (και που κινείται και κινεί πολύ χρήμα).
