NATO Launches new cyber defense

Last month, NATO began initiating some cyber defenses in order to defend against potential attacks. This is especially interesting considering how involved the United States is in the organization. Hopefully these new defenses will stay defensive instead of offensive and NATO won’t create or perpetuate a cyber war. Especially considering that a central tenant of the alliance is that if anyone attacks one of the countries involved, all of the countries retaliate. Considering that the new technology (presumably) involves some ability to detect attacks and figure out who started the attack, this could easily escalate to a cyber war, if not a real one, if NATO doesn’t act defensively and stay defensive instead of retaliatory.
