NATO Ministers Agree to Bolster Cyber Defenses

NATO ministers agreed to strengthen the organization's cyber defenses but differed about how much NATO should do to protect smaller allies from potentially devastating hacking attacks. Last year, NATO dealt with over 2,500 "significant cases" of cyber attacks on its systems, NATO's chief, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said at the alliance's first in-depth review of cyber defence, a meeting that showed how the issue has risen to the top of the security agenda.
