Germany’s Defense Minister sees cyber attacks as the biggest threat

Munich Security Conference
Germany’s Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen thinks that cyber attacks are the greatest challenge threatening global stability now, as she told CNBC in an interview.
"I think it's the cyber threats because whatever adversaries you can think of and even if you talk about Daesh (the terrorist group) they use the cyber domain to fight against us,” she said.

According to her, the next decade will be devoted to strengthening the cybersecurity and countering cyber attacks. 
Previously, the White House, the Foreign Ministry of the UK, and Danish Minister of Defense Claus Hjort Frederiksen had publicly accused Russia of NotPetya cyberattack. Russia called the accusations ungrounded and not proven. 
NotPetya cyberattack hit Ukraine on July 27. It was a large-scale cyber attack that affected dozens of companies and enterprises across Ukraine, having contaminated a few ministries and the Boryspil Airport, among others.
