Portugal joins NATO’s Cyber Defence team

fibreopticNATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) is to include Portugal as a team member.

“We are glad to welcome Portugal, another strong NATO ally joining the Centre. CCDCOE offers a unique opportunity for all NATO Allies to practice together new interdisciplinary approaches in cyber defence," said Merle Maigre, the Centre’s director. 

The CCDCOE is a military cyber defence hub focusing on research, training and exercises, based in Tallin, Estonia.

There are 20 nations represented, fielding experts in technology, strategy, operations and law.

The Centre organises the world’s largest international live-fire cyber defence exercise, named ‘Locked Shields’ and hosts the international conference on Cyber Conflict, (CyCon), where key technical experts and decision-makers get together each Spring. This year's effort includes a Portuguese team of 25 technicians and personnel from the armed forces and various Cyberdefence bodies.

The Centre is staffed and financed by its member nations, currently these are Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Recently Norway and Japan announced that they are also on the path to join the Centre and should join Portugal shortly.

"Defence" of course really means war/attack and NATO is gearing up to enact the US Empire's latest lunatic plan for total global domination of resources, aka World War III.
