Latvia's spyware threat under examination

The recent revelation that several crucial IT systems in Latvia might be seriously compromised by foreign spyware is the central theme of a new piece of analysis from the Latvian Institute of Foreign Affairs (LIIA),

Titled Shaping Posture Through Perception, the piece says "multiple questions about the posture and perception of the Latvian institutions in regards to the cyber domain have to be brought forth," and then proceeds to work through those questions in both domestic and global terms.

"In order to shape the perceptions of policymakers and the overall posture towards cyber security the practice of active communication and educated discussion should be established between policymakers and professionals. Secondly, on the basis of said understanding, the shaping of posture can be assisted by a multi-levelled approach towards different adversaries with the conclusions drawn from ally states experiences. Thirdly, with regards to the insufficient capacity, the most important factor which has to be highlighted is the full usage of international endorsements and investments fostering effective and educated approach towards problem-solving, thus enhancing cyber resilience through clear perceptions and sturdy posture," the analysis concludes.
