Department of Defense officials, including deputy secretary of defense William Lynn, are meeting with NATO and European Union officials in Brussels, Belgium, this week to discuss how they can work together on cybersecurity issues.

Lynn will be meeting with NATO’s secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, and others. Hungary’s Gabor Iklody is the point person on emerging security challenges for NATO, including cybersecurity, heading up a new office opened in August.

“It’s an opportunity to bring cyber experts to really begin putting the implementation aspects behind the plan,” a senior defense official told an official Department of Defense news outlet, the Armed Forces Press Service, on background, adding that the meetings would help facilitate the development of “a common vision based on the threat to better secure NATO’s networks.”
