 In a 2010 strategic concept report, NATO said cyber attacks were becoming more damaging to government administrations and economies.

NATO leaders are meeting in Brussels, Belgium this week but cybersecurity measures from the organization are still not clear because NATO is not sure of what to do in the event of a major cyber attack, Wired reports.

NATO is also unsure of what it needs to protect.

“We need to think these things through,” said Jamie Shea, NATO’s deputy assistant secretary general for emerging security challenges, according to Wired.

Shea added that NATO is focusing primarily on developing defensive strategies in cyberspace.

NATO is also unsure of its level of involvement in the event of a cyberattack because countries such as the U.S. have mostly private information infrastructures for cyberspace.

Other countries in Europe have government involvement in developing information infrastructures.
