Unprotected computer networks are a security threat. Adversaries can obtain military secrets by breaking into the information and communications systems of a military force, business or nation state. They can also target and interfere with civilian 'critical' networks essential for everyday life, such as nuclear reactors, telecommunication companies, power plants and water supply facilities. NATO has had to adapt to this new security threat. This insight evaluates the progress the alliance has made so far as well as the challenges it still faces in the areas of resources, procurement, personnel, training and information sharing.
