Fleming named Russia and China as the main threats and revised an analogy he's previously used that asserted "Russia is affecting the weather, whilst China is shaping the climate.

"That remains the case. But when it comes to technology, I'll use another analogy.

"The threat posed by Russia's activity is like finding a vulnerability on a specific app on your phone it's potentially serious, but you can probably use an alternative.  However, the concern is that China's size and technological weight means that it has the potential to control the global operating system."
