NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg recently announced that the alliance will be adding its member states’ cyberwarfare capabilities as a military option.

Stoltenberg also revealed plans for the creation of NATO’s Cyber Operations Center, which had been prompted in part by the recent “assertiveness” of Russia.

He added that the use of “cyber weapons” may be more appropriate than the standard military response in certain scenarios, and that it will be an integrated part in any military conflict.

NATO has stated that it had already used cyberattacks against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
