30 October 2019 - For the second year in a row, at the invitation of Montenegro’s Government, an elite team of American cyber experts will be working on combating malicious cyberattacks together with their Montenegrin counterparts.

As the American Embassy reported, operations of the Command of the American cyber team are part of the American efforts to counter opponents in cyberspace, through joint work with reliable partners and allies. Those defense operations also show insight into the cyber threats in the run-up to the forthcoming American and Montenegrin elections.

"Both the USA and Montenegro have benefited from our close partnership in the domain of cyber defense, which helps us protect our common values and interests," said American ambassador to Montenegro Judy Rising Reinke.

She said that working with Montenegro was a clear example of how the free world "cooperates in widening security", writes Cafe del Montenegro.

"We are looking for adequate ways and resources to protect democracy in the Western Balkans from those who would like to see this part of Europe shattered," said Montenegro’s Defense Minister Predrag Bošković.

While defending important infrastructure and resources, American and Montenegrin cyber experts investigate capabilities and means of acting against malicious cyber attacks.

Just like the US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said recently, thanks to direct cooperation with Montenegro in the field of cybersecurity, the United States of America managed to provide means of protection from the latest Russian malware.

Back in December 2018, Minister of Public Administration of Montenegro, Suzana Pribilović and UK Ambassador to Montenegro Alison Camp opened a roundtable dedicated to cybersecurity in Podgorica, sponsored by the Ministry of Public Administration of Montenegro and the UK Embassy, in cooperation with the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF).
