Denmark plans to invest 465 million kroner ($75 million) to create an offensive cyberwarfare unit by 2017 to deal with hostile internet attacks.
The task will be assigned to the Defense Intelligence Service (FE), which will have the power to conduct cyber attacks and will develop cyberwarfare strategy toward hostile countries and organizations, Danish daily Jydske Vestkysten reported.
