Re: Silver lining to morphing threat actor challenges
Think - bad actors don't even have to breach a system,just provide a bona-fide threat to the system and it is considered breached or in question.  That alone assures their work has the desired effect.   Disrupt an election just by the threat of doing so.  And then done and move on.

Silver lining to morphing threat actor challenges
Yes, the quieter, more stealthy successor versions of an organization can be more dangerous - but careful reexamination of the originating entity should provide valuable clues, which will help identify and anticipate the new threats.  Digital leopards can change their spots, but not their mitochondrial DNA. 

Just as legitimate businesses will always have vulnerabilities due to continuity, bad actor organizations will drag personnel, structure, style, habits and other legacy elements into their new integuments.
