Atlanta Lawyer, Investigator Offer Lessons from the FBI’s Disruption of North Korea’s Botnet2月 20, 2019 Daily Report By Kamal Ghali and Mark Ray
Nardello & Co. Managing Director and Head of Digital Investigations & Cyber Defense, Mark Ray, and Kamal Ghali of Bondurant Mixson & Elmore co-authored an article on the recent disruption of the Joanap botnet, the latest advanced cyber-threat emanating from North Korea, and proactive steps companies can take to reduce their cyberrisk and defend against similar threats.
“On Jan. 30, the U.S. Department of Justice revealed a secret operation to disrupt and uncover the Joanap botnet—one of North Korea’s tools for inflicting technological mayhem around the world. The FBI’s strategy, which in part turns on notifying users infected with the malware, underscores critical lessons about how cybersecurity awareness can serve U.S. national security goals and protect companies from damaging cyberattacks.”
