NATO Announces 58 Million Euro Investment in Cyber Defence

The NATO Consultation, Command and Control Agency (NC3A) has announced the award of a contract for upgrading the NATO cyber defence capabilities. The award to private industrial companies will enable the already operating NATO Computer Incident Response Capability (NCIRC) to achieve full operational capability by the end of 2012. At approximately 58 million Euro, it represents NATO's largest investment to date in cyber defence.

"The NCIRC FOC project is a direct result of NATO nations' commitment to improve NATO's capabilities to detect, assess, prevent, defend and recover in case of a cyber attack against systems of critical importance to the Alliance. This award is an essential step towards delivering these capabilities by the end of 2012," said Ambassador Gabor Iklody, head of the Emerging Security Challenges Division at NATO HQ, the lead body for NATO cybe defence.
