Alliance power for Cyber Security presented at CODEBLUE2020 2020

Summary : There is only one Internet, and it is fragile. In this new global domain, nation-states are surprisingly limited in what they can do to defend against international cybercrime, espionage, terror, and war. Beyond pure technical expertise, the most effective cybersecurity strategy for any government is to collaborate with allies. For democracies, the only credible political and military alliances are the European Union (EU) and NATO, whose member states comprise dozens of like-minded nations and hundreds of first-class network security, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies. Together, they constitute the world’s only cyber superpower.
