In 2018 Rob Joyce, senior advisory for cybersecurity strategy at the NSA, stated that there are four actors that are exceptions to a broad consensus of responsible Internet behavior. The countries of Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. In the past week, we have seen all four target the electoral process in the United States. It has been generally accepted that Russia and China were the primary threats, but Iran and North Korea were summarily dismissed as a viable threat. Additionally, many sectors local governments, schools, and hospitals did not take the threat seriously. It is evident that not only cyber-criminals but all four pose a credible threat to any sector of the United States.
