Re: Disorder is an incentive
And now that fighting with "bits and bytes" has escalated to the evergreen, perennial battle for hearts and minds -- as we've seen with all the #FakeNews hullabaloo.

reuse
> "at the end of the day they will reuse code and are lazy. That helps us" identify them"

I'm aware of at least one cybersecurity vendor that boasts that it conducts this kind of analysis to detect what kind of attacks will happen next -- by analyzing code reuse patterns and similar recycling.

Re: Disorder is an incentive
Dr. T, You're right.  Since we live in the digital space, their behaviors are just as impactful as physical assaults in an age where all was physical.

Attacks
Olympic Destroyer. NotPetya. Bad Rabbit. OilRig. These disruptive and in most cases destructive cyberattacks were just the beginning. Obviously these are the beginning of more complex cyberattacks, hard to get handle on them anymore.

Governments
All the governments will continue to protect themselves against the rest going forward. They start developing their own technologies and world will become more divided. This is sad.

Re: Disorder is an incentive
Many of the world-shaping events in human history came about during a time of chaos and disorder. That is true I think, we go and think out of the box when we c8me to the end of the rope.

Disorder is an incentive
Many of the world-shaping events in human history came about during a time of chaos and disorder.  While eyes are distracted by the headlines and the uncertainty of what's to come, those with a will to power (cybercriminals in our digital world) take advantage of the circumstances and seize the opportunity for attack campaigns.  

When we fought with guns, bullets, and bombs...this to the took the form of coups.  Now, we fight with bits, bytes, data, and information...this takes the form of targeted attacks and crippling institutions, halting progress and the standard operations of a civil society.
