ASIO warns of overwhelming level of ‘harmful’ foreign spying threats

Oz has gotten hip to the mass industrial spying going on by foreign powers in the west.

Will the US wake up in time?

“Domestic intelligence agency ASIO says it has not been able to keep up with the growing level of “harmful espionage and foreign interference” operations being carried out in Australia, which have sought to steal sensitive government and corporate information and covertly influence public debate“.

The secretive agency said it had struggled to meet the demands of confronting two major threats, terrorism that “shows no sign of diminishing” and an “unprecedented” level of hostile foreign interference that was “expanding in its scope and complexity”.
