US training allies on how to combat North Korean cyberattacks

State Department says it's hosting multiday courses through 2023 as DPRK hackers increase attacks on financial systems

The U.S. is training allies and partner nations to better detect and mitigate North Korean cyberattacks, the State Department said Thursday, as espionage and financially motivated intrusions increasingly weigh on both the private and public sectors. 

According to a press release, the agency’s Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy (CDP) is providing the nine-day training course, dubbed Unhiding Hidden Cobra, throughout 2022 and 2023 with a federally funded research division at Carnegie Mellon University.
