(2018) Speech by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the Cyber Defence Pledge Conference (Ecole militaire, Paris)
In 2014, NATO leaders agreed that a cyber-attack could trigger Article 5 of our founding treaty.
Where an attack on one Ally is treated as an attack on all Allies.
Traditionally, an Article 5 attack would be with tanks, aircraft and soldiers.
Now it can come in the form of a cyber-attack.
Placing cyber at the very heart of what we do.
