NATO Set to Ratify Pledge on Joint Defense in Case of Major Cyberattack

"When President Obama meets with other NATO leaders later this week, they are expected to ratify what seems, at first glance, a far-reaching change in the organization’s mission of collective defense: For the first time, a cyberattack on any of the 28 NATO nations could be declared an attack on all of them, much like a ground invasion or an airborne bombing."

Annie's take:

Is this a step forward or a step back? How does it overlap or impact each country's global surveillance programs?
