Congressional Sanctions against North Korea: An Iran Re-do?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

For much of the past decade since North Korea first tested a nuclear device, there has been a debate over whether and how much to apply sanctions pressure on North Korea and those who do business with it. This debate has centered on views arrayed along two axes: 1) the degree to which North Korea […] Congressional Sanctions against North Korea: An Iran Re-do? is an article from 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea, published by the US-Korea Institute at SAIS.

Reality Check on North Korean Sanctions

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A recent op-ed by Sung-Yoon Lee and Joshua Stanton highlights what should happen in dealing with North Korea. Unfortunately, for this long-time practitioner in the field of nonproliferation sanctions, it also highlights what cannot happen—or at least what cannot happen at an acceptable level of risk with the limited knowledge and the complex agendas that […] Reality Check on North Korean Sanctions is an article from 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea, published by the US-Korea Institute at SAIS.

Sanctions’ Role in Dealing with the North Korean Problem

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

For almost a decade, sanctions have been the principal coercive instrument available to the United States and the international community in trying to deal with North Korea’s nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missile programs. As bilateral and multilateral negotiating tracks with the DPRK have withered, sanctions that were initially crafted to slow North Korean proliferation […] Sanctions’ Role in Dealing with the North Korean Problem is an article from 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea, published by the US-Korea Institute at SAIS.

China ambassador: Hacking sanctions could hurt Xi visit

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

China’s ambassador to the United States is warning that sanctioning Beijing for hacking the U.S. government would be counterproductive ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Washington visit at the end of the month. The White House is reportedly on the precipice of unveiling economic sanctions against China for hacking U.S. companies, and potentially for orchestrating the massive digital theft of over 20 million federal workers’ data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Such punishments would come at a pivotal time for the U.S.-China relationship. Later this month, Xi will make his first official trip as president to Washington for a series of high-level meetings. Both sides have been trying to remain on good terms ahead of the visit, despite ongoing disputes over China’s recent currency devaluation and territorial claims in the South China Sea, in addition to growing cyber tensions. Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai argued hacking sanctions could help derail the meetings. Such punishments would be non-constructive, Cui said, according to China Daily, a state news outlet. “This means that China and the U.S. have every reason to conduct more communications and cooperation in this regard, instead of moving towards conflict and confrontation,” the ambassador […]

Beijing expected to escape US hacking sanctions

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Looming sanctions aimed at Chinese interests suspected of stealing and profiting from U.S. trade secrets are unlikely to directly target Beijing, as the White House is expected to go after companies instead of foreign governments. A series of leaked comments from unnamed White House sources over the past few days has revealed that sanctions against hackers are now in the works. But experts say they wont apply to cyberattacks like the recent hack of the federal Office of Professional Management, which compromised the personal information of millions of f workers and is widely considered to be the work of state-backed hackers. That’s because the Obama administration is wary of imposing sanctions for normal state-sponsored intelligence gathering tactics the U.S. government itself employs on an ongoing basis. “[OPM] is something that the federal government looks at as a legitimate intelligence target that we as a government failed to protect,” said Rob Knake, a former White House cyber official and senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. “It does not fall outside the bounds of what intelligence agencies traditionally want to know.” As a matter of policy, the U.S. has tried to draw a line in the sand between hacking for […]

Hacking endangers U.S. agents, cyber sanctions in the works, surveillance court battle continues

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Chinese and Russian spy agencies are using hacked U.S. data to identify American intelligence officers and agents. “At least one clandestine network of American engineers and scientists who provide technical assistance to U.S. undercover operatives and agents overseas has been compromised as a result, according to two U.S. officials,” the Los Angeles Times reports. “Counterintelligence officials say their adversaries combine those immense data files and then employ sophisticated software to try to isolate disparate clues that can be used to identify and track — or worse, blackmail and recruit — U.S. intelligence operatives.” UNPRECEDENTED: The Obama administration is working on a set of economic sanctions against Chinese companies and individuals who have benefited from their government’s hacking activities. As The Post reports, “The U.S. government has not yet decided whether to issue these sanctions, but a final call is expected soon — perhaps even within the next two weeks … Issuing sanctions would represent a significant expansion in the administration’s public response to the rising wave of ­cyber-economic espionage initiated by Chinese hackers, who officials say have stolen everything from nuclear power plant designs to search engine source code to confidential negotiating positions of energy companies.” THE HILL’S NEXT CYBER […]
