Welcome to the NATO Industry Cyber Partnership

“Cyber-attacks can be as dangerous as conventional attacks. They can shut down important infrastructure. They can have a great negative impact on our operations… We are prepared for attacks that might happen in the future. Cyber-attack is something which is happening every day. And we are responding every day to different kinds of cyber-attacks.”

– NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Joint Press Point with Sven Mikser, Minister of Defence of Estonia in November 2014

The interconnected and open character of cyberspace has offered unprecedented opportunities for our economies and has transformed the fabric of our societies. By the same token, cyber threats are growing both in numbers and in sophistication. As the majority of networks are owned and operated by the private sector, its technological innovations and expertise are crucial for cyber defence. Cooperation, in particular information sharing on threats, can reinforce the resilience of networks and help to prevent, respond to, and recover from, cyber attacks. Against this background, we will work with industry as part of an open, transparent and mutually beneficial partnership – the NATO Industry Cyber Partnership (NICP). Such a partnership supports NATO’s principal role in cyber defence: the protection of its own networks.
