North Korea's elite hackers
The Wall Street Journal commented that North Korea’s “cyber army” is becoming one of the world’s most sophisticated and dangerous hacking machines. Over the past 18 months, the skill level of North Korean hackers has rapidly improved and their targets have become more worrisome. Pyongyang is cultivating elite hackers much like other countries train Olympic athletes. How good are they? Dangerously good - South Korean officials estimate their country is targeted 17 times every second. We have pointed out many times that cyberspace will become increasingly dangerous and, therefore, the need for retailers to develop defense abilities.
