NATO NCI to team with Leonardo for cyber-guarding alliance summit in London

08 March 2019

A team composed of 200 digital security experts from the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency and Leonardo are to provide cyber defence support to NATO’s London summit in December.

The NCI Agency on 13 February renewed a cyber defence contract with Leonardo to protect the NATO fixed enterprise networks deployed on the sites over an 18-month period, part of a NATO Computer Incident Response Capability Full Operational Capability (NCIRC FOC) cyber security contract. The NCIRC-FOC has also protected NATO summits in Wales in 2014, Warsaw in 2016, and Brussels in 2018.

NATO’s main focus in cyber defence is to protect its networks (including missions and operations) and to enhance resilience across the alliance’s systems.
