Cybersecurity Needs Advance as North Korea Infiltrates US Systems
Cybersecurity is becoming really important as the country engages in war with North Korea, a country where freedom comes at a price (Ollie, 2017).
North Koreans face internet censorship, and are controlled by a terrorist regime, kept away from secrets their government is hiding (Ollie, 2017).
Taking a brief look at America today, one can easily note that the majority of Americans are unaware of political issues like war, and the stealing of classified information. The democratization of this information is lacking, shrouded by politics and exaggerated claims by media pundits.
Recently, North Korean hackers, trained from a young age, have been able to attack the aerospace, telecommunications and financial industries (Ollie, 2017).
Hackers from North Korea have been causing turmoil for nearly a decade, including the big Sony hack of 2014, leaking important work documents, and employee information, as well as their hack of New York’s federal reserve last year (Ollie, 2017).
Hidden Cobra, a secretive North Korean organization, has been attacking the U.S., and can cause major disruption and damage to institutions that it infiltrates, through hacking and hi-jacking of computer systems.
Attacks like these are why the US needs better cybersecurity programs and measures. Hackers are not only accessing peoples’ bank accounts, but also gaining access to government, and military data (Spring, 2017).
Cyberwarfare is rampant between countries involved in the current war and is a good reason for the USA to hire talented programming and cybersecurity professionals (Michaelidis, 2017) (“Cyberwarfare”, 2017).
