Norwegian security body NSM urges steps to lessen threats

Thursday 30 March 2017 | 11:54 CET | News

In its report 'Risks 2017', it said vulnerabilities arise in long value chains that are hard to survey, as they involve many organisations of various size that are connected by digital services. The targets are often national defence and civil contingency planning, as well as critical infrastructure and political decision-making.
