Senior officials from NATO and the European Union met at the Alliance’s headquarters in Brussels on Tuesday (17 December 2019) for discussions on cyber defence.
“Over the last years NATO and the EU have intensified their engagement on cyber. We exchange real-time information between incident response teams, participate in each other’s exercises, and work on training and research” said Dr. Antonio Missiroli, NATO’s Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges.
The officials discussed efforts to enhance the security of next generation networks and initiatives to promote cyber stability between states. They also addressed ways to prevent, deter and respond to malicious cyber activities.
My father was a naval officer, and one of my uncles died at Dunkirk in 1940. That doesn’t immediately give you any expertise on military matters, but I also studied international relations and geopolitics. I have worked in think-tanks specialising more in defence and security issues. I take a professional break for family reasons and I spend some time writing about my professional subjects.
