Uploaded on Sunday 9 September 2018


Being a good cyber defender means more than possessing the technical expertise – it means being a good communicator, and being capable of devising effective policies to address to rapidly developing crises. As the cyber threat grows in size and complexity, NATO needs these experts more than ever.

NATO’s Deputy Head of Cyber Defence, Chelsey Slack, recently helped judge the Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge, co-hosted by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy and the Atlantic Council in Geneva, Switzerland. In this video, Slack explains why encouraging and cultivating well-rounded cyber defenders today is necessary for protecting the Alliance’s networks in the future.

Footage includes scenes of students competing in the challenge, interviews with contestants and an interview with Chelsey Slack.
