Abstract:

At the June 2016 Ministerial Meeting, the NATO Defence Ministers agreed to recognize cyberspace as an operational domain. That decision was endorsed and reaffirmed at the NATO Summit in Warsaw in July 2016. As part of this effort, NATO directed the development of an implementation roadmap for review at the February 2017 Defence Ministerial Meeting. NATOs Allied Command Transformation ACT requested the RAND Corporations assistance to provide analysis that would inform the implementation of the roadmap, focusing on identifying lessons learned from national practice conducting analysis and engagement to develop, refine, and improve material to inform NATO decision-making and providing an independent, objective view on approaches to implement the roadmap.
