NATO Secretary General: Better Cyber Defense More Important than 2% of GDP Pledge

Two years ago, NATO adopted a pledge to give cyber issues greater standing in defense strategy. Now, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is emphasizing this pledge as the most important within NATO. Recently, “he told a Paris audience that the pledge isn’t getting the attention it deserves. ‘Today’s great leap forward is no physical, but digital…nowhere is the fog of war thicker than it is in cyberspace.’

Stoltenberg has credited the pledge with improving the way that member nations have addressed cyber defenses in a ‘broader, more holistic way, involving government departments, public sector organizations, private companies, and individual citizens.’
