Morrison & Foerster partner John P. Carlin outlined the deficiencies the United States faces against a cyber-attack from North Korea in the ABC News article “United States remains vulnerable to North Korean cyber-attack, analysts say.”

“We’re still vulnerable,” he said. “The threat in this space way outmatches what our current defenses are. It needs to be a top priority of this administration and this Congress to fix it … You’ve seen all these attacks take place. It’s not a hypothetical.”

Mr. Carlin continued; “I can’t think of a more urgent problem facing this administration, but as of yet we haven’t heard what their strategy will be. I hope that it goes to the top of their agenda.”
