13th NATO Cyber Defence Workshop will be held May 26-28, 2010 in Tallinn, Estonia.
Cyber defence has become an important building block and confidence building measure within NATO transformation. The scope and complexity of these issues will likely require the release of many concept development and experimentation trials in the future. However, NATO has already achieved three important milestones in the field of cyber defence:
Firstly, a real-time management capability is ensured with the creation of the Cyber Defence Management Authority (CDMA). Secondly, 24/7 NATO’s network defence and incident handling support is the responsibility of NATO Computer Incident Response Capability. Last but not least, an intellectual platform for long-term doctrinal and strategic thinking about the cyber domain is in place through the accreditation of the International Military Organisation - Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE).
Evolving threats in cyber space and society’s growing dependency on critical information infrastructure enforces the Euro-Atlantic community to keep a constant momentum when building cyber defence capabilities in cooperative and holistic manner. This workshop aims at supporting NATO and NATO nations in participating and influencing the process of building a multinational and multidisciplinary framework among allies.
NCIRC and CCDCOE invite representatives from NATO member states to the workshop to contribute to the process.
