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 RÃ¤ty, permanent secretary at the Finnish MoD, added that â€œthere 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…
