Ben Hiller

Ben Hiller is a Senior Policy Officer for Cyber and Hybrid issues at NATO. In his role, he developed NATO’s current  Cyber Defence Policy as well as strategic measures to address cyber campaigns below the Article 5 threshold. Following Russia’s war of aggression on Ukraine, Ben also developed the Alliance’s concept for enhancing the contribution of cyber defence to NATO’s overall deterrence and defence posture. A key focus of his work is the integration of civil-military cyber defense capabilities to address malicious cyber campaigns throughout peacetime, crisis and conflict.

Before joining NATO, Ben was responsible for cyber policy at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). In his role he guided efforts in developing and operationalizing confidence building measures (CBMs) to reduce the risks of conflicts stemming from the use of cyber capabilities between States. Before that, Ben worked on counter terrorism issues, focusing on the use of technology and biometrics for the secure cross-border movement of people and goods across Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia.
