Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn III said yesterday he is encouraged by the sense of purpose on cybersecurity he received from NATO members during his visit to Brussels, Belgium.

“It seemed to me to be broadly held that NATO needs to make a strong commitment in this area,“ he told reporters in Brussels, “and I was impressed with that sense of purpose.“

Speaking about the need for a collective cyber defense, Lynn said NATO is the perfect platform to fight the cyber threat. The alliance understands the need for cybersecurity and is already moving in that direction, he added. The NATO Cyber Incident Response Center has stood up, he noted, and there are plans to bring it to full operational capability.

“They are in discussions on what the right operational concepts should be in regard to the broader NATO reform effort,“ he said, “but I am quite confident that we will see the right organizational structure to address cyber issues post-summit.“

Lynn said he would like to see a high-level commitment to cybersecurity as a priority for the alliance, as well as progress in the organization constructs addressing this threat, and growth in capabilities.

The deputy secretary addressed the nature of what collective defense means in the cyberspace. He stressed that collaborative protection does not mean opening up networks to all users, but instead promotes members sharing information on attacks and solutions.

NATO is also looking at overhauling its internal organizations, the deputy secretary said, adding that he believes cybersecurity will become more important as the process moves along.
