On the occasion of the Atlantic Treaty Association’s (ATA) 63rd Council Meeting, and on the heels of yet another global cyber attack known as Petya, targeting hundreds of thousands of computers across the globe, ATA in partnership with MUST & Partners hosted at the European Parliament in Brussels on 28th June 2017 the conference “NATO, EU & INDUSTRY: COOPERATION ON CYBER-SECURITY. A Transatlantic Exchange of Best Practices.” to discuss how effective NATO-EU cooperation can achieve greater cyber security.
This conference brought together experts, policy makers, officials, and industry representatives to discuss the progress and implementation of enhanced cooperation between NATO and the EU in light of the recent Technical Arrangement on Cyber Defence. Panelists analyzed the best practices already being used by their respective nations, institutions, and organizations to provide specific policy recommendations in order to implement a cooperative cyber security strategy within the context of a more effective NATO-EU partnership.
This discussion provided a unique and high-profile opportunity for senior level professionals from NATO, EU, Think-Tanks, NGOs, and industries to discuss challenges and find common solutions to cybersecurity, and served as a force multiplier for NATO-EU cooperation.

Panel: Implementation of NATO & EU’s Strategy in the Field of Cyber Security: What Role for the Private Sector?
Cyber security is critical for nations, businesses and individuals; however, existing cyber policy varies significantly between nations and international organizations, creating different approaches that have left several domains vulnerable such as national security and individual data protection. The risk of a devastating cyber-attack against critical infrastructure is very real, and lack of the ability to protect the digital market place and privacy of individuals puts modern society in danger when conducting online communications, money transactions and sensitive information sharing. In this framework, the Technical Arrangement on Cyber Security between NATO & EU and the 42-concrete proposal for a better implementation of the NATO-EU cooperation are decisive steps in the right direction to ensuring a resilient and defendable cyberspace for the Euro-Atlantic region. Panelists will discuss modern challenges and provide audiences with case studies and best practices to explain the added value of a more effective partnership with the public sector to enhance the resilience of cyberspace for governments and their citizens.
