@tinym: It depends, of course, on the nation-state at issue. In Russia's case, for instance, many simply freelance. Evidence indicates, however, that China directly employs their cyberwarriors. Ditto, of course, for the DPRK.

I know security requires a constant vigilance to be effective, but accepting that an organization has been penetrated seems bit a too dark, even if it may be a realistic way to address the problem.

Where there is a greed factor, when anytime there's lots of profit possibilities, there's going to be folks who will try to steal. As pointed out "You have to accept that your organization has been penetrated or is about to be," and with the intenet accessable from anywhere, it's a likely bet that there's both individuals and government agencies looking for data that can be profitably used if they think they can't be caught.

Imagine the training these hacker groups receive once they accept the state's requests. I wonder how many gross freelance for the state and how many are directly employed.

@ Magneticnorth. I'm sure countries such as North Korea have no qualms with stealing money from U.S. and other nations banks via hacking. North Korea has done a brilliant job in countereting U.S. $100 dollars in the past. (I don't know about the present." These so called "superdollars", are or were identical to the ones made in the U.S. Hopefully the new $100 bill design has put a stop to this.
Nations such as this will steal anyway possible.
