Former officials buck White House adviser's comments about government hacking - CyberScoop

NATO’s Cyber Domain Concept Shows Increased Maturity in Understanding of Cyber Threats

NATO’s Cyber Domain Concept Shows Increased Maturity in Understanding of Cyber Threats | Cyber Defence | Scoop.it

Recently, there have been a number of articles that explore the important and ongoing debate about the capabilities and policies NATO needs in order to deter and defend against the ever-looming cyber threats. While many such articles accurately highlight the urgent need for NATO and its member states to develop a more proactive approach to countering cyber threats, it is worth further considering a significant step the Alliance has already taken towards achieving a more effective posture to counter cyber threats. At the NATO Warsaw Summit in July 2016, the Alliance declared cyberspace an operational domain.
