Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
Can We Expect Iran to Launch Cyber Attacks in Responsefor the US Revoking JCPOA?
Colleagues, anger, outrage and retribution lye at the heart of Iran’s response to the US’ withdraw from the JCPOA agreement on May 9, 2018. As such we predict Iran, possibly aided by Russia, will unleash a new round of cyber security attacks against US interests in North America and abroad. The Iranian government has been accused by western analysts of its own cyber-attacks against the United States, Israel and Persian Gulf Arab countries. Like its allies Russia and North Korea, it is widely believed that Iran has heavily invested to strengthen its offensive cyber capabilities such as the Iran Hackers Sabotage. Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) purports that Iran is “one of the most active players in the international cyber arena”. So what to expect? Our view is that Iran will seek out soft cyber targets in the US communications, financial and energy sectors. But for Iran the real prize would be an attack on a US federal government or military installation with the goal of sending a clear “political” message to the Trump administration.
