star this property answer text <p>The Enhanced NATO Policy on cyber defence, agreed at the Wales Summit, contains a number of elements to protect NATO's own networks and assist Allies in discharging their responsibility to protect national networks. One such, proposed by the UK, was delivered in October in Mons through the launch of the NATO Industry Cyber Partnership (NICP). This will help to strengthen NATO cooperation with industry on cyber defence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In the period until July of this year, the Ministry of Defence's Defence Advisory and Training Team (DATT) based in Tripoli provided support for the defence and security aspects of the UK's £62.5 million Security, Justice and Defence programme. The DATT provided specialist advice on Defence Reform, Disarmament, and Border Security, working with the Libyan Land forces, Navy, Air Force, Border Security Force and Training Directorates. DATT support included programmes on strategic communication, developing explosive ordnance disposal schools, creation of a joint operational planning capability, and naval training. In the UK, eight Libyan Navy officers completed a Maritime Communications Course at the Maritime Warfare School in July 2014. In early August we withdrew the DATT following the deterioration in the security situation in Tripoli. We are closely monitoring the situation and remain committed to providing support to the Libyan Government and to the efforts of the UK and US political envoys to bring about a political settlement.</p>
