A couple of weeks ago, I thought it worth calling to reader's attention the threat assessment done by the Norwegian Police Security Service (more or less Norway's MI-5). Today, we have news from the Norwegian intelligence branch with their own assessment. As you might expect, the first two highlight items of concern are Russia and the Artic. [The underlying report is in Norwegian, so I am relying on Google Translate here.] Notably for my own interests Norway accuses China, and Russia, of sustained cyber assaults. As an English language news summary puts it: "Gen. Lunde says that state-sponsored hacking groups have targeted many Norwegian companies during the past year. He says that these companies are suppliers and collaborators of the Norwegian army and that hackers have stolen information considered to be state military secrets."
