NATO’s Security Operations in Electronic Warfare: The Policy of Cyber Defence and the Alliance’s New Strategic Concept

ABSTRACT

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) is evolving, both militarily and politically. In April of 2009, Allied member-states agreed to a renewed Strategic Concept to be presented in 2010. There will be a requirement of technological update against any forms of asymmetrical threats that includes electronic attacks. NATO is steadily unfolding a policy of Cyber- Defence. This paper provides the reader with the appropriate information, on what has been accomplished up to this date, in relation to NATO's network operational preparations. It examines and evaluates existing policies and recommends new ones to counter 21st century electronic warfare attacks.
