Weekly Intelligence Summary 10 Jan 2020

January 10, 2020

In the spotlight this week: Since the recent airstrikes by the United States in Iran, which resulted in the death of General Qasem Soleimani, security researchers and media outlets have been focused on the potential of any Iran-associated response. The geopolitical tension that already existed between the United States and Iran has sometimes resulted in offensive cyber activity―mostly destructive, disruptive, and/or espionage campaigns.  A cyber response from Iran is an option but in this case there is no guarantee, considering the nature and impact of the physical event. If any does occur, the Iranian threat actors’ capabilities, tool sophistication, and tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), as well as impact of a successful cyber attack, would likely be similar to those previously exhibited, although the motive and attack focus may differ.
