Websense’s final prediction slide is about those new cyber war players. pic.twitter.com/nhRoZ1Zxdk

via Janetter for Mac

The good news, says Hansmann, is that the new players won’t be very good, so they’ll be easier to spot.

via Janetter for Mac

“For every stage of the kill chain, there are black market services out there,” says Hansmann. Welcome to regional and local cyber war.

via Janetter for Mac

Hansmann points out that there’s plenty of malware sample code out there for new nation-states to learn from, and services to hire.
