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.

The new agreement will facilitate information-sharing to improve cyber incident prevention, detection and response at both the EU and NATO.

Since Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea, NATO and the EU, which have 22 member countries in common, have accelerated cooperation in a number of defense-related fields.
