North Atlantic Treaty OrganizationThe North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Union (EU) on 10 February 2016 signed an agreement to improve cooperation in cyber defense.

The technical agreement signed at NATO headquarters at Brussels, Belgium will help the two in countering the modern forms of hybrid warfare.

The deal establishes a framework for emergency response teams from the NATO and the EU to exchange information and share best practices.
