EDA Chief Executive Mr. Jorge Domecq Discussed Cooperation with the Centre

The NATO Cooperative Centre Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) welcomed Mr. Jorge Domecq, the Chief Executive of European Defence Agency (EDA) for a discussion on future cooperation between the two organisations.

Mr. Jorge Domecq was briefed on recent and upcoming highlights of the Centre. Further discussion focused on the roadmap of actions agreed by EDA and CCD COE, aiming to improve cooperation between EDA and CCD COE in areas of common interest.

The European Defence Agency was created in 2004 to support the Council and the Member States in their effort to improve the European Union’s defence capabilities for the Common Security and Defence Policy.

The NATO Cooperative Centre Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence is a NATO-accredited knowledge hub, research institution, and training and exercise facility. The Tallinn-based international military organisation focuses on interdisciplinary applied research, consultations, trainings and exercises in the field of cyber security. The Centre is a multinational and interdisciplinary hub of cyber defence expertise, uniting practitioners from 20 nations. The mix of military, government and industry backgrounds means the NATO CCD COE provides a unique 360-degree approach to cyber defence.

NATO CCD COE is the home of the Tallinn Manual 2.0 on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Operations. The Centre organises the world’s largest and most complex international technical cyber defence exercise Locked Shields and the annual conference on cyber conflict, CyCon.
