Nevertheless, you can see that a terrorist organization such as Hezbollah has basic cyber capabilities but with the backing of another nation state. As we’ve mentioned, nation state-sponsored activity is shrouded in secrecy in terms of capabilities and the technology they use for conducting information operations against other countries and/or terrorist and extremist groups. The countries that have been vocal about their cyber capabilities are the folowing: China The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has formulated a cyber warfare doctrine that outlines a strategy to become the world’s leader in terms of cyber warfare.

We believe that profit and gain are the main factors that drive people to do what they do—right or wrong. But was this always the case? That is the question.

SUMMARY In this preface, we discussed the capabilities of various cyber actors and models that help articulate the characteristics and sophistication levels of a variety of groups. One key element is attribution of the attacker, and toward that end, we gave a few examples of methods for tracing attribution. Attribution on a global level does require a lot more analysis and clarity, however. In terms of criminal activity across borders, it requires the help of state and local law enforcement and information from ISPs, which can take a long time if the attack is coming from another country.
