In this project, I examine the US termed GRIZZLY STEPPE programme in a Danish context, with the purpose of evaluating it, in a cyber enabled opinion shaping context, based on the Russian theory of Reflective Control. Through a model of connecting Reflective Control as a basic framework for opinion shaping activities with cyber centric perspectives on tools for information warfare, I study a number of reports released by the Danish governments Centre for Cyber Security, with the purpose of noting similarities and differences as well as two specific opinion shaping events, targeted at Denmark by Russian actors. Next I create four scenarios based on the activities found in the two theories, which I use for deducing possibilities for recognizing cyber enabled opinion shaping activities target at Denmark.
Following that I draw lines towards election related cyber enabled opinion shaping activities, with recent events in the Netherlands, Germany and France as the centre and the upcoming Danish municipal election as a future alignment marker.
Finally, I conclude that due to a solid understanding and open dialogue in Denmark we are as a nation relatively robust in our possibilities of recognizing cyber enabled opinion shaping activities targeted at Denmark.
