North Korea Targeting Think Tanks

Here is more from ClearanceJobs:

This week, a joint cybersecurity advisory was released by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the U.S. Cyber Command Cyber National Mission Force (CNMF). The advisory warned that a North Korean advanced persistent threat (APT) group known as “Kimsuky” was directed at worldwide targets in an effort to gain intelligence on various topics of interest to the government in Pyongyang.

Its intelligence collection activities have focused on foreign policy and national security issues related to the Korean peninsula, nuclear policy, and sanctions. The main targets have been experts in various fields, think tanks, and South Korean government entities.

North Korea is one of numerous countries that has targeted think tanks in recent years.
