By the same token, cyber threats are growing both in numbers and in sophistication.

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.
