Brent Scowcroft Center Assistant Director Klara Tothova Jordan writes for the National Interest on the new plan NATO will present for improving cyberdefense: 


NATO summits are moments for the Alliance to reflect on past accomplishments and provide strategic direction for the future. While difficult issues ranging from Ukraine to Afghanistan will likely overshadow important developments in the cyberdefense arena at the Wales Summit, the heads of state of the Alliance are expected to approve a major change in cyberpolicy that will be a landmark step in the evolution of member states’ and NATO’s cyberstrategy.

In its new Enhanced NATO Policy on Cyber Defense, NATO will present a plan for improving the governance of cyberdefense, along with a new framework for its relationship with industry. It will also announce new cyber educational and training initiatives, and will introduce cyberdefense into its future operational planning.
