Reuters: White House announces sanctions in response on hacker attacks on U.S. transport and energy systems
Sanctions will be implemented under proper conditions and if they are in line with U.S. policy, Homeland Security Advisor to President Obama says
According to Lisa Monaco, the U.S. Homeland Security Advisor to the President, the mentioned attacks are the assaults on U.S. banks perpetrated by Iran, and a cyber-attack threat coming from the North Korea (Reuters). ‘To put it simple, we’re in the middle of the revolution of cybernetic threats; they get more and more stable, more versatile, more frequent and more dangerous every day’, Monaco said.
The official added that the U.S. government works with other countries on the issue of voluntary introduction of norms of punishment for cyber terrorism, so as to cut down the maleficent activity.
The U.S. Presidential administration treats Russia and China as the most complicated and powerful sources of cybernetic threats.
