#Cyber theft of US Data, IP is enabled by our inability to properly recognize Intangible Assets, which would otherwise drive proactive measures. Blaming foreign "Military-Civil Fusion" causes confusion, shifts accountability.
Quantifying intangible asset value enables 21st century revenue & operational models. "@nokia’s sales from #patents & brand #licensing reached €1.5 bn last year, [enough] to qualify as one of its four main strategic pillars."
Reactive pricing (Verizon's $350M loss on Yahoo's #breach, Nortel's $4.5bn #patent fire sale, and now #TikTok) shouldn't be our primary means for understanding value, nor should measuring the cost to protect intangible assets

I've asked before and I'll ask again:
"What do #cyber war correspondents wear on the battlefield?"
FTR, I was the only embedded #cyber war correspondent in 2003 during "Operation Internet Freedom" and I carried a state-of-the-art sidearm:
The last photo in that tweet (see above) is from one of many power outages our Level III trauma hospital base suffered during my tour. These vicious cyber attacks originated from #Iran or maybe, just maybe, the Army excavators we requested each time to trench our latrines

It's getting frustrating being a Nigerian..

It's another annoying and frustrating moment.

Went online to purchase a product for my website. Guess what?

Nigeria is the notable only country deleted or eliminated from the list.

Now let's see how this affects me and us.
#1. It affects my business, completely confused on what next.

#2. It affects my immediate environment : if my fam depends on me and I can't purchase a product for my website - work - and make money then lack is on the way.
#3. It affects the economy. No flow of cash which starts from the immediate environment.

#4. It affects emotional health being.

#5. It affects moralistic living - how many times will one regret being a Nigerian?

I never chose to be a Nigerian...

#Election2016 for US "a similar sort of wake-up call" to #Russia's launch of #Sputnik in 1957, per @CISAKrebs

"This was truly an affront to the American ppl because it demonstrated the potentiality to undermine democracy at large-that's why we take it as seriously as we do"
"I've said it before & I'll say it again. The 2020 election will be the most secure election in modern history" @CISAKrebs tells @BrookingsInst

"We've been truly able to raise the awareness of cybersecurity threats with our partners. They get it"
At least 92% of states will have a paper record of each vote - so election can be audited and verified, per @CISAKrebs

But with #COVID19 and expansion of absentee voting, that percentage could be even higher
