Russian cyber attack could trigger NATO’s Article 5, warns NATO Deputy Secretary General
Mircea Geoană, Deputy Secretary General of NATO, says that when the alliance decided that cyber should be considered an “operational domain,” the bloc also made the call that a “massive cyber attack” on one member state could trigger Article 5 of NATO’s Washington Treaty. This strikes at the heart of the alliance’s defense clause, which states that an attack on one country is considered an attack on all allies.
Geoană spoke with moderator David Sanger in GZERO Media's Global Stage livestream discussion at the Munich Security Conference.
