Cyber Security Expert: Threat of Iran Cyber­-Attack Remains High

Bracewell’s David Springer joined Spectrum News’ Karina Kling to discuss cyber security and monitoring an uptick of malicious activity by pro-Iranian hackers.

“Certainly it looks like over the past 48 hours there’s been a little bit of a step-back from a direct military confrontation,” said Springer who spent six years working in counter-terrorism and cyber security at the Defense Intelligence Agency. “But in some ways that actually increases the risk of cyber activity because, while we may have stepped back from exchanges of rockets and airstrikes, the cyber-attacks are a lot more amorphous and harder to attribute and harder to retaliate for because you just don’t know who did it. Attribution is always a huge problem.”
