Readers will learn how hackers use these exploits, whythey use them, and in some cases how they get caught.With Branigan's background as a sworn law-enforcement officer (cop), systemadministrator (geek), computer programmer (geek), Internet security consultant(geek with tie), and network security researcher (geek in shorts), he offers aunique perspective to help people better understand the many issues with hightechcrime and how they might be affected.

The Growing Cyberthreat from Iran: The Initial Report of Project Pistachio Harvest

Iran is emerging as a significant cyberthreat to the US and its allies. The size and sophistication of the nation’s hacking capabilities have grown markedly over the last few years, and Iran has already penetrated well-defended networks in the US and Saudi Arabia and seized and destroyed sensitive data. The lifting of economic sanctions as a result of the recently announced framework for a nuclear deal with Iran will dramatically increase the resources Iran can put toward expanding its cyberattack infrastructure. We must anticipate that the Iranian cyberthreat may well begin to grow much more rapidly. Yet we must also avoid overreacting to this threat, which is not yet unmanageable. The first requirement of developing a sound response is understanding the nature of the problem, which is the aim of this report.

Pistachio Harvest is a collaborative project between Norse Corporation and the Critical Threats Project at the American Enterprise Institute to describe Iran’s footprint in cyberspace and identify important trends in Iranian cyberattacks. It draws on data from the Norse Intelligence Network, which consists of several million advanced sensors distributed around the globe. Data from Norse systems combined with open-source information collected by the analysts of the Critical Threats Project have allowed us to see and outline for the first time the real nature and extent of the Iranian cyberthreat.
