Finland Goes on Cyber Offensive

Finland is about to “considerably enhance its cyber defence capabilities” with “counterpunch” and “cyber-weaponry”. Good marketing, but I’m pretty sure their supporting theory is not true

Lt. Gen. Arto Räty, permanent secretary at the Finnish MoD, added that “there can be no defensive capability without the ability to offer a counterpunch. The two things go hand in hand.”

Logically you can have defensive capability without a counterpunch. Regardless of whether I agree with their fighting style, however, I look forward to seeing yet another interpretation of Napoleon’s four innovations in offensive strategy, or Sun Tzu’s six principles.

I mean I wouldn’t be surprised if Finland started their presentation with the announcement that they have developed an enhanced cyber-sword to keep cyber-sheathed unless provoked…
