The Information Revolution has transformed the human condition, connecting people across the globe and putting a superabundance of knowledge a few keystrokes or clicks away. It has also, somewhat counterintuitively, further divided the two Koreas.
Whereas the South is one of the most wired countries on Earth, the North is the polar opposite, and the stark contrast underlines how ideological and idiosyncratic the Information Revolution has been in the DPRK, as well as the serious cybersecurity implications resulting from this.
