Citing a rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape, NATO and Finland stepped up their engagement with the signing of a Political Framework Arrangement on cyber defence cooperation.
The arrangement will allow NATO and Finland to ‘better protect and improve the resilience’ of their networks.
Ambassador Sorin Ducaru, NATO Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges said:
“We look forward to enhancing our situational awareness and exchanging best practices with Finland, including through dedicated points of contact for rapid information exchange on early warning information and lessons learned.”
Mr. Jukka Juusti, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Defence of Finland said:
“This arrangement is a good example of the cooperation between NATO and Finland – it is practical, substantial and at the same time mutually beneficial. Finland sees many opportunities of enhanced cooperation for example in conducting training and exercises in the cyber domain.”
The signing of this arrangement is the latest example of long-standing cooperation on cyber defence between NATO and Finland.
