TALLINN, Estonia — The United States has joined NATO's cyber defense research center in Estonia that works on ways to combat cyberattacks.

The multinational center was created in 2008 after Estonia's government and corporate computer networks came under attack the year before following a dispute with neighboring Russia.

The United States will help fund the center, and its scientists and cyber defense experts will be able to both study and teach at the center's premises in the Estonian capital Tallinn.

The U.S. Embassy in Estonia said Wednesday that Poland was also joining the center, which now will have 10 members.

Previously the United States held an observer status at the facility.
