Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told a press briefing at NATO headquarters in Brussels today that “NATO's Computer Incident Response Center is on track to achieve full operational capabilities next week. This center will provide protection from cyber intrusions against NATO computer networks, a capability that was identified as a priority at our June ministerial meeting.”
He added that “U.S. supports a proposal for the center to have teams of NATO cyber experts that can be quickly deployed to assist allied nations if they request help in dealing with cyber intrusions or attacks.”
I wonder if this includes the ability to report NSA snooping into networks in France and Germany.
