EdgeWave: Why Iran Hacks

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - October 06, 2015) - This is Part 4 in an EdgeWave series exploring the motivations that drive Nation States to participate in cyber activity such as cyber exploitation. Part 4 dives into Iran, and what cyber capabilities they have. This series is written by Mike Walls, (CAPT U.S. Navy Ret.), former Commander, Task Force 1030 supporting Fleet operational cyber readiness.

"If Iran is to successfully establish itself as the dominant power in the Middle East, it must minimize Western influence in the region and increase its influence over its neighbors. To do that, Iran must disrupt the military and economic influence of Western countries that maintain a presence in the region, and at the same time it must destabilize those regional Sunni governments friendly to the West."
