Attempts at digital espionage and online political manipulation in Europe are on the rise both in number and in complexity, the Netherlands’ main intelligence agency said Tuesday in its annual report.

Adding its voice to fears around the world of a rise in covert digital influence and espionage, the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service said in its 2017 report a growing number of foreign powers are using cyber espionage “to acquire information that they use for (geo) political gain.”

It highlighted Russia, which it said is “extremely driven in the covert digital influencing of (political) decision making processes.” It added that the agency also has seen similar attempts by China.
