The North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Russia should undertake joint information-warfare exercises so the two countries can better protect critical digital infrastructure, policy wonks at an international group said. The proposal, which was included in a 32-page report released Wednesday by the EastWest Institute, would help …
Maybe the current US administration will actually hear this one
I wholeheartedly believe that it would be a fine show of good faith, in the presence of post-Soviet-Bloc Russian nationalism, to offer to actually play *friendly* with the fellows, for once, in a bit of sporting cyber-game - as long as we all make sure that the big guns are disconnected from the mains, first.
Still, I wonder how willing the current administration would be to assist Russia in hardening herself against our own prying noses. I don't suppose it's something they'd play dice about, on any table, regardless.
Getting right Down and Dirty and into IT, with some Serious Monkey Business.

There would be those who would be thinking that the US is the Weakling, Foundering in the Virtual Field, and Suffering from a Catastrophic Lack of Necessarily New Intelligence, AC. ...... And behaving like a ignorant schoolyard bully in the company of sophisticated nonchalant peers?

Russia, The United States, and Cyber Diplomacy: Opening the Doors.
Opening the doors?
No, no, you've got it all wrong.
Security is all about *closing* doors...
"OK, now we're going to pretend to disable your electricity grid Don't worry, it's only a simulated attack"
"Oops, sorry about that, seems we got UAT and LIVE mixed up."
Nations Acting Badly
Given past Russian behavior, namely more than willing to conduct attacks, cyber and/or physical, against neighboring states, are we willing to not only help polish their tools but to expose to their scrutiny our repertoire? Only an idiot in a think tank could come up with this. I wonder how much they got paid for this bit of fluff. Then again this isn't much better: "Develop an “ecosystem” of trusted identities through public key infrastructure framework developed by the ITU." Why develop them. To have them stolen? To be fraudulently used in the future? The head of the ITU has already proved he's clueless.
