List of speakers


Cyber is now a central part of virtually all crises and conflicts. NATO has made it clear that cyber-attacks can potentially trigger an Article 5 response. We need to detect and counter cyber-attacks early, improve our resilience, and be able to recover quickly. A more active cyber policy should be a focus as we plan for Warsaw.

Jens Stoltenberg
NATO Secretary General
