    The project aims to protect NATO networks and the alliance’s ability to support members during cyberattacks with improved information sharing and strengthened rapid reaction teams. The contract covers the design, testing, and installation of cyberdefense capabilities by the end of 2012, plus maintenance and support over five years. The project includes implementation of a robust infrastructure of improved cyberdefense sensors and management tools and cyberdefense decision support capabilities and mobile kits for cyber-rapid reaction teams.
