Norway to Improve Security Around Submarine Fiber Cables

Norway will beef up security around the digital infrastructure that is essential for the Nordic country’s oil and gas production, following the recent sabotage on the Nord Stream pipelines.

Norway will spend an additional 43 million kroner ($4.3 million) to purchase new technology that enables threats to submarine fiber cables to be identified and to investigate important stretches of cable, the government said on Tuesday. That will also cover the purchase of equipment that can detect disturbances to satellite-based services, such as GPS, on the Norwegian continental shelf.
