Britain has split with 16 NATO allies information of hostile Russian cyber activity in their countries over the last 18 months, according to the Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt. He will charge the intelligence services of Russia for escalating a “ global campaign” aiming crucial infrastructure, in a speech at the NATO Cyber Defence Pledge Conference in London for being attended leader of the alliances Jeans Stoltenberg.
He will alert, as per the briefing of the speech released by his department, “ this global campaign also seeks to compromise central government networks”.
He added, “I can disclose that in the last 18 months, the National Cyber Security Centre has shared information and assessments with 16 NATO Allies – and even more nations outside the Alliance – of Russian cyber activity in their countries. ”
NATO has 29 member states. He will claim that the efforts to control the elections in the United States and Ukraine “breach international law – and justify a proportionate response. ”
He also added, “ together, we possess options for responding to any attacks. We should be prepared to use them.” The relationship of London with Moscow has decayed since the rule of the US President Vladimir Putin, winding up in the poisoning last year of former Russian spy Sergei Skip on British soil.
