NATO plans to spend 3 billion euro during the next three years to upgrade satellite systems adapting to new threats, according to Reuters.

"Seeking to deter hackers, and other threats including Iranian missiles, the investments underscore NATO's recognition that conflicts are increasingly fought on computer networks as well as in the air, on land and at sea," agency reports.

Senior official of the NATO Communications and Information Agency also informed that plans include 1.7 billion euro investment in satellite systems for better support of army and ships, deployed in terms of the alliance, as well as aiding UAVs usage.

NATO announced that it recorded five-fold increase in suspicious events in its networks, while Russian APT28 is accused by Western intelligence of hacking Democratic party during the last year’s election in USA.

Official NATO representatives informed Reuters that they are suspecting Russia in sponsoring attacks on its networks before large summits.
