MUN White Paper for NATO

MUN White Paper for NATO.

The delegation of Denmark recognizes cyber warfare as a relevant and legitimate threat to alliance-wide security. It has been functioning as a threat to the member states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization for the past decade. Cyber attacks sourcing from nations’ governments and terrorist organizations have affected the security and integrity of the alliance’s states and it is of prime importance to take notice to avoid harm in the near and distant future.

Cyber attacks are made possible through the measure of exploiting the vulnerabilities of national services and digital media outlets. If carried out properly, this attack is difficult to detect and stop and can progress to the interception or even impersonation of an information source, leading to the spread of misinformation towards the society and theft of national intelligence. Cyber attacks have the potential and gravity to compromise the data and therefore put the entirety of the alliance at threat. This is a real issue, as it has happened in the past.

In 2007, Estonian government networks were struck by a series of DOS (Denial of service) attacks by foreign intruders.
