This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with Scott LaFoy. They speak about the background of North Korea’s warfighting capabilities, their development of asymmetric threats, the place that cyber-warfare now holds in this regard, the history of North Korea’s cyber-operations, the strategic value of this type of warfare, as well as looking into the different motivations for such conflict through analysing a series of actual North Korean cyber-attacks.
