NATO announces new cyber defence centre

NATO members agreed on Wednesday (10) to establish a new cyber defense unit aimed at alerting military commanders to emerging hacking threats against the alliance.

The Integrated Cyber ​​Defense Center will share information on potential cyber threats to private infrastructure that is “necessary to support military activities,” the alliance said in a statement. The center will be based at NATO’s military headquarters in Belgium.

NATO computer networks are regularly targeted by espionage and criminal hackers. Earlier in the summit this week, pro-Russian hackers claimed to have targeted NATO websites.

“In recent days, our cybersecurity experts have detected a substantial increase in attempted hacking and leaking activities claimed by various groups on the dark web,” a NATO official told CNN . “Similar events occurred during last year’s summit, so this is not a surprise. NATO’s classified networks remained operational throughout.”
