Identify an incident in cybercrime or cyberwarfare

Identify an incident in cybercrime or cyberwarfare related to this entity. Fully discuss the specifics of the cyber incident (and related incidents) and analyze the motivation of the actors/attackers. Also suggest methods for organizations to discourage hackers or intruders with similar motives and suggest safeguards to protect the organization against similar attacks.

Your paper’s focus should be on the type of incident and the actors: personalities, motivation, characteristics, and defenses. You will find Module “Psychological Aspects of Cybersecurity” helpful with this assignment. Link your analysis to previous readings, interactive modules, and discussion topics, with appropriate citations.
At a minimum, questions you must address are:
What kind of threat/incident was this? What is the larger category of threat?
Regarding the threat actors:
What sort of people would go after this information?
Why would they want it?
What will/can they do with it?
How would they get it?
How would potential attackers be identified?
How would the organization discourage attacks?
How would the organization defend against the threat?

Prepare your paper in Word format. It should be double-spaced with one-inch margins all around. The citations and the reference list in the paper should be formatted in accordance with APA 6th edition guidelines.
