I imagine the #sonytruthers playing armchair #DFIR investigators will emerge from wherever they’ve been hiding in order to dispute the #DPRK #indictment. My advice: you were wrong in 2014-2015, and you’d still be wrong today. HT ⁦…
Because #attribution is inherently political per @RidT and @BuchananBen, you need more than “hacking” knowledge to assess national policy. Experience w/ #cybersecurity clearly helps, but gov internals, intel agency processes, bureaucracy, trade, diplomacy, LE, are all important.
I think it’s slowly changing, but a failure of #cybersecurity has been to think “soft” areas are much easier than coding, so any leet hacker is inherently qualified to address political science, history, economics, and related topics by virtue of their ability to code in ASM.

SHORT THREAD on the upcoming #Helsinki summit b/n #Putin, @realDonaldTrump.
1. Amidst modest,if not low,expectations on the very deliverables of the meeting it's interesting to see public & back-channel efforts of #Moscow & #Washington to build the agenda for the summit.
2. @AmbJohnBolton 's visit to #Moscow was meant to lay the ground for the summit & it appears the parties have reached agreement on the basics. What #Putin & #Bolton were conveying to one another is important.…
3. There's plenty of speculation over what the two will agree on in #Syria - the topic likely to dominate the summit. That said, given what's happening now b/n #Rus #US diplomats it's clear they been tasked to elaborate on broader agenda to make the talks look substantive.
