U.S. Co-hosts 2022 NATO Cyber Defense Conference

 The summit took place at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The United States co-hosted NATO’s 2022 Cyber Defense Pledge Conference with Italy this week, supported by NATO international staff members. Members of the White House and the Italian Deputy Foreign Minister Edmondo Cirielli gave keynote addresses to open the conference. Allied leaders then discussed cyber threat counter strategies and ways to digitally protect the global energy sector.

“Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified war on Ukraine has emphasized once again the overwhelming impact of the cyber dimension on our security and the imperative of cyber preparedness,” State Department Press Secretary Price stated. “Allies will discuss these and other crucial topics, with a view to increase cyber resilience both at the national level and as an Alliance.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary of State Antony Blinken as he leads diplomatic efforts around the world.
  • For State Department officials as they cooperate with international allies on cyber security.
  • For the president and his cyber advisors as they endeavor to support the nation’s cyber defenses.
