NATO Cyber Defence: A Decade of Opportunities and Challenges

This event has been tagged as follows:
What role do artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics play in NATO’s pursuit of cyber defense, and how do sovereign voluntary cyber technologies work into mutual defense and deterrence? Are allies prepared to counter severe supply chain security threats like NotPetya and SolarWinds, and how do risk reduction mechanisms and requirements help ease 5G security issues in the face of China’s great power competition? If these are questions that you are interested in then you will certainly find value in this conference which is aimed at government-level cybersecurity professionals. Those with an interest as well in cyber warfare will also of course benefit.

NATO CCDCOE, William & Mary, and King’s College London are pleased to invite you to the sideline event of the NATO Cyber Defence Pledge conference 2021. This public event, ‘NATO Cyber Defence: A Decade of Opportunities and Challenges, will be held on 16 April 2021 1500-1700 EEST / 1400-1600 CET / 0800-1000 EDT. The event will feature Dr Antonio Missiroli, Associate Senior Policy Fellow for Emerging Security Threats, Leiden University and the former NATO Assistant Secretary-General for Emerging Security Challenges, and Mr Douglas Jones, Chargé d’Affaires ad Interim at the US Mission to NATO, for forward-looking discussions on NATO’s role in global cyber security. They and other speakers will explore the opportunities and challenges for NATO from emerging technologies, and how emerging technologies and the rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape alter the international security environment.
In 2016, NATO leaders endorsed the NATO Cyber Defence Pledge enhancing their national networks and infrastructure; and recognised cyberspace as a domain of military operations. NATO leaders have discussed hardening their national defences in Paris in 2018 and London in 2019. The event will bring together leaders from the government, academy, the private sector, and new generation leaders to take the discussion further. The first session ‘NATO Cyber Defence and Offence in the International Environment’ explores how Allies align their sovereign interests, capabilities and cyber doctrine with NATO operational requirements and strategic ambitions. The second session ‘Resilience and Supply Chain Cybersecurity: Alliances and Partnerships’ addresses how NATO works with partners to meet the supply chain cybersecurity challenge.
How does NATO use the opportunities from Artificial Intelligence and automation for enchasing cyber defence, and how do sovereign voluntary cyber capabilities fit into collective defence and deterrence? Are Allies prepared to mitigate serious supply chain security attacks such as not-Petya and SolarWinds, and how risk mitigation frameworks and standards could alleviate 5G security concerns amid the great power competition with China?
