The Cyber Threat Within: US FBI Identifies “Vault 7” Attack Suspect at the CIA
Colleagues, former US CIA cyber expert Joshua Adam Schulte is the FBI’s prime suspect in releasing top secret cyber methods and measures to WikiLeaks in 2016. Schulte is in custody in NYC. Schulte is charges with distribution of national defense information including computer code designed to take over iPhones and convert smart televisions into surveillance devices. It appears that Schulte follows in the footsteps of Americans Jonathan Pollard, Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks Australian founder Julian Assange. Aside from the fact that he was labeled as a “disgruntled employee” at the CIA its remains to be seen what motivated Schulte. Bottom line: Despite advanced human factors, cyber security software and profiling, governmental and private sector entities alike must remain increasingly vigilant against the potentially treasonous acts of employees and third party contractors. Further resources must be devoted to mitigating and preventing internal threats. Share your comments and subscribe today! Lawrence, Cyber Security Defender
