Who we are

We help NATO keep its edge.

We are a team of 3,000 civilian and military staff members, located in 34 sites throughout Europe and North America.

We help NATO and its member countries communicate and work together to fulfil their mission – preserve peace and security for nearly one billion citizens.

The Agency is on the frontline against cyber threats, protecting NATO's networks 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to prevent debilitating attacks.

Our experts provide capabilities and services that are critical to NATO's ability to fulfil its core tasks of consultation, collective defence and crisis management.

We achieve this by working in partnership with industry, academia and not-for-profit organizations.

The Agency was established on 1 July 2012 as part of a NATO reform. But the Agency was built on a 65-year legacy, as our predecessors supported Allied operations long before. We have decades of experience of working side-by-side with NATO soldiers, sailors and airmen and women.

Our work helps NATO keep its technological edge.
