Education & Training
Multinational Cyber Defence Education and Training Project
(MN CD E&T)
NATO SMART DEFENCE PROJECT 1.36
1. The MN CD E&T project builds upon the fact that both at NATO and Allied nations levels, Education and Training (E&T) perform a central role in the development, operation and maintenance of skills and competencies associated with cyber defence capabilities. On October 2013, Portugal was invited to assume the leadership of a Multinational Smart Defence Project on Cyber Defence Education and Training (MN CD E&T).
2. The aim of this project is to create a CD E&T Coordination Platform (central coordination point for a web of E&T activities) and to provide new initiatives to fulfil Nations’ and NATO’s CD E&T shortfalls.
3. MN CD E&T will contribute to enhance national cyber defence capability development processes, as well as to improve interoperability between experts within NATO and Allies. Under the Smart Defence framework, Participating Nations will have the possibility to offer national CD E&T activities to NATO and other Allies, and obtain NATO certification on those activities.
