Deputy Secretary of Defense William Lynn traveled to Ottawa recently to try and drum up support for a new international organization to combat cyber warfare. He told the Canadian audience the U.S. can't defend its networks alone, and pointed to increasing threats from hackers and computer viruses.

The visit marked the kick-off a U.S.-led initiative to create such an international organization. Discussions have begun with several countries.
