The much-celebrated, decades old special relationship between the U.S. and U.K. has seen its share of war games — they're both members of NATO, after all — but not quite like this.
David Cameron arrived in Washington for a two-day visit Thursday night and announced the two countries will stage a series of cyber war games to help each other learn to counter cyberattacks.
Both Cameron and President Obama have been calling for better tools to fight hackers, and security is one of the main themes of Cameron's U.S. trip. That includes defending businesses and infrastructure from the growing threat posed by hackers.
