NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg addressed a conference at the National Cyber Security Centre in London on Thursday (23 May 2019) on how the Alliance is countering cyber threats.

Mr. Stoltenberg highlighted how technologies are fundamentally changing the nature of warfare and that NATO is adapting by strengthening its capabilities and increasing its resources. The Secretary General said, “For deterrence to have full effect, potential attackers must know that we are not limited to respond in cyberspace when we are attacked in cyber space. We can and we will use the full range of capabilities at our disposal.”  Bolstering cyber defences and resilience will be a top priority at the NATO Summit of Allied Heads of State and Government to be held in London on 3-4 December.
