Report: NATO Leaders to Tackle Cyber Issues at Warsaw Summit

cybersecurityNATO leaders will discuss the role of cyberspace in modern wars, conflicts and crises along with strategies to manage cyber issues at the alliance’s summit in Warsaw, Breaking Defense reported Tuesday.

Patrik Maldre and Jarno Limnell write the summit, which is scheduled to occur July 8 and 9, aims to tackle political strategies meant to facilitate cyber readiness and address growing threats such as denial-of-service, malware and social engineering programs.

Maldre and Limnell said they believe NATO should aim to increase cyber resilience among its allies and introduce new cyber capacity goals in the organization’s defense planning processes to help build trust among member states in the field of hybrid warfare.

NATO should also work to develop a cyber command that would plan and operate units for its defense initiatives as well as an early warning and trust-based information sharing system in an effort to deepen cooperation with the private sector industry, Maldre and Limnell added.
