NATO may Invoke Collective Defense Clause over Cyber-Attack
According to the Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty; an attack on one member is considered an attack on all NATO members, even within the bounds of cyber warfare.
In response to the recent cyber assaults, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg revealed that aside from land, sea, and air, NATO is establishing cyberspace as a military domain. NATO’s 29 allies are currently working to improve its member nation’s cyber defenses.
NATO says that these cyber-attacks are now employing advanced psychological warfare, information operations, coercion, and intimidation, and has become a big threat to the future of democracy, as well as the stability and health of their institutions.
