NATO Awards Largest Cyber-Security Contract To Date 45

Sara Chan writes "NATO has awarded its largest cyber-security contract to date, in a move that is expected to prompt member states to augment their own cyber-security capabilities. The contract, for €58 million ($76 million), is to design and implement NATO's Computer Incident Response Capability. NCIRC will enable NATO to monitor computer networks from its headquarters in Brussels and detect and respond to cyber threats and vulnerabilities at about 50 NATO sites in 28 countries. The project is intended to meet the requirements of a declaration by NATO Head of States at the Lisbon Summit, in November 2010, which called for the achievement of NCIRC Full Operational Capability by end of 2012."

    So, who gets to decide exactly *what* constitutes a "CyberThread"?

    The CyberThreat Czar of course. For a country founded in part of ridding itself of a monarchy, the United States of Amerika seems Hell bent on establishing its own monarchy given all the czars named over the past twenty years. May I be Czar of Sarcasm, please?

I've got a bad feeling about this.
