On 14-15 March, the five founding nations of the Multinational Cyber Defence Capability Development (MN CD2) Project: Canada (Lead Nation), Denmark, Norway, Romania and The Netherlands met for the first official MN CD2 Board meeting at the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency in Brussels.
During the Board Meeting, the participating nations discussed the three work packages currently being implemented under the MN CD2 collaboration framework.
The first work package will provide participating nations with a capability to exchange cyber incident information (including malware information) between their national Computer Security Incident Response Teams. The second work package will allow participating nations to improve their national situational awareness for cyber defence through the development of specific information repository and visualization interfaces. In the third work package, participating nations will pool their national resources to investigate ways to detect malicious activities performed by advanced persistent threats and facilitate the assessment of attacks and the damage that they have caused.
This project is part of the Secretary General’s Smart Defence drive. It is a Tier1 project in the Smart Defence project proposals database, with the NATO Consultation, Command and Control Board (C3B) as the Sponsor Committee.
NATO Nations interested in joining the MN CD2 Smart Defence project are invited to contact Mrs A. Szydelko, Principal Account Manager Multinational & Organizations at NCI Agency Demand Management Directorate, tel +32 2 707 8241, firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
