On Wednesday 10 February 2016, a Technical Arrangement on Cyber Defence was concluded between the NATO Computer Incident Response Capability (NCIRC) and the Computer Emergency Response Team of the European Union (CERT-EU).
The Technical Arrangement provides a framework for exchanging information and sharing best practices between emergency response teams. The aim of the arrangement is to enhance the cyber defences of both organisations by exchanging cyber defence-related data. "Information exchange is crucial to cyber defence," said Koen Gijsbers, General Manager of the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency, responsible for operating and defending NATO's networks. "The Technical Arrangement covers both the exchange of information on specific cyber threats, and the sharing of best practices on technical procedures, configuration of networks, and partnership with industry."
