National Cyber Security Centre Review: Discussion
Again, the Defence Forces have one person posted within the NCSC. There is co-operation with other military intelligence people and-or with people working in cyberdefence to protect military installations from being attacked. Cyberattack can, in addition to land, sea and air attacks, be seen as a fourth vector of attack. Any modern military force must have a defensive capacity in this regard. When I was in Estonia, I met one of our soldiers working in that area.
