Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday that Iran and North Korea are constantly improving their abilities to launch cyber-attacks on the United States. The Senate hearing comes in the wake of alleged Russian hacking into the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election
“Iran and North Korea continue to improve their capabilities to launch disruptive or destructive cyber-attacks to support their political objectives,” Clapper said during a Senate hearing on cybersecurity.
Clapper also warned that terrorist groups, including ISIS, continue to use the internet to bolster their operations. “Non-state actors, notably terrorist groups, most especially including ISIL, also continue to use the internet to organize, recruit, spread propaganda, raise funds, collect intelligence, inspire action by disciples, and coordinate operations,” Clapper told the committee.
