The difference between kinetic and cyber attacks

It’s striking — and worrying — that missile launches by North Korea, no matter how unimportant in the big picture, get worldwide news coverage every time they happen.

But North Korea’s ongoing cyberattacks, which are having serious effects and are raising startlingly large amounts of money for the regime are mentioned only on technical sites, and only occasionally.

We have to hope that military and government have a more balanced view of the relative threat — but it seems clear that politicians don’t.
