DoD discusses cybersecurity with NATO, EU
Thursday - 1/27/2011, 2:26pm EST
Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn met inside the alliance headquarters in Brussels to come up with a plan to combat a recent slew of cyber attacks. According to the American Forces Press Service, the cyber defense meeting was planned at a summit in Lisbon back in November.
They reconvened for a progress report. NATO had committed to developing a cyber-incident response organization and to develop a cyber defense policy by June of this year.
The group says in a joint statement - cyber-threats have become more frequent, more organized, and more costly. They say, the attacks have reached a threshold that threatens national security and stability - in the U.S. and across Europe.
Deputy Secretary Lynn stressed the importance of public-private partnerships at this latest meeting. He said that's because the government and military regularly use private networks to communicate. The Press Service says - about 80 to 90 percent of what the government and military do in cyberspace relies on private infrastructure.
