US girds for cyber threats from Iran as Military clash fears ebb

John Dickson, a former air force intelligence officer and now an executive with the Denim Group consultancy, said the security community should not let its guard down because some time has elapsed since the drone attack.

“I think the threat is more pronounced now,” Dickson said.

“They’ve had time to prepare and dust off their plans, that is more in line with how the Iranians operate.”

Dickson said ransomware is a likely option because “as they get squeezed economically by sanctions, ransomware is a way to get access to cash.”
