US, Canada, Australia and Mexico agree to cooperate on cyberattacks

By RYAN ROSS and MARCUS GARLANDEDUCHIAPOLISUSWASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau agreed Monday to cooperate to fight cyberattacks against countries, but the U.K. and Australia were still sticking with their own separate approaches.

U.S.-based cyber-security firm Kaspersky Lab said the three nations agreed to share information on the type of cyberattack they have detected, and how to prevent it.

The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution in March calling for greater cooperation in cyber-defence.

The U.A.E., which is the world’s second-largest economy, has faced growing threats from foreign hackers, as well as Russia, China and North Korea.
