Top NATO officials and industry representatives are discussing how to join forces and efforts to combat ever more sophisticated cyber threats at the Alliance’s annual two-day cyber security conference NIAS 16 in Mons, Belgium.
Today’s first day of the conference opened on the next steps for NATO’s cyber defence from political, operational and technological perspectives.
“Partnerships are essential. None of us alone is better equipped to fight cyber threats than all of us together,” said Ambassador Sorin Ducaru, NATO Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges.
Ambassador Ducaru emphasized the importance of cyberspace for NATO today and in the future: “We know that NATO’s operations and missions are going to be unfolding in a heavily contested environment where our networks will be under attack.”
