The NCI Agency's General Manager, Mr Kevin J. Scheid, has emphasized the commitment of NATO's Cyber and Technology arm to supporting missions and operations across the Alliance during his meeting with the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), General Curtis M. Scaparrotti.

This introductory meeting at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) in Mons, Belgium, on 14 September 2017, served as the perfect opportunity for NATO's commanding officer of Allied Command Operations and Mr Scheid to discuss matters of cooperation between the NCI Agency and the two Strategic Commands – Allied Command Transformation and Allied Command Operations – and reaffirm Agency support to exercises, missions and operations across the Alliance. As cyber is becoming an increasingly complex and important domain of operations for NATO, Mr Scheid underlined that it is indispensable to keep up with the pace of change, and ensure that Allied efforts are underpinned by robust, secure and resilient IT networks that ensure the safety and security of Allied forces in the theater of operations.

These fruitful discussions have become a cornerstone of the General Manager's short period in charge of the Agency, and have been a fundamental part of his effort to review and restate the position of the Agency in the Alliance.
