Nation-State Attacks

Organization backed by nation-states have morphed in recent years into really organized cyberterrorist organizations looking for either data, money or IP, according to Matthew Polly, CrowdStrike's vice president of worldwide channels.

Attackers are most frequently from Russia, Chin, and North Korea, with the Chinese actors often looking for IP rather than money so that Chinese companies or the government can replicate or duplicate what the victim organization had done, Polly said.

Conversely, North Korean entities and attacks usually want bitcoin or money, Polly said, meaning that a WannaCry-style ransomware attack is typically what's coming.
