Is the chance that Beijing could turn TikTok into a massive global propaganda machine too big of a risk? Researchers connect a cyberattack on a state legislature back to China. And cybersecurity has a big data problem. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 13.

Opinion: The real reason to ban TikTok

Today, most U.S. political discourse around TikTok is misguided. We focus on the news of China’s data theft and connect the dots from Experian, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Anthem Insurance, U.S. government payrolls and intellectual property theft to TikTok. If new information suggests China is up to no good (again) with TikTok, we are primed to believe that data theft is the real threat. But that’s not it at all. It’s our very public discourse that is at risk — not from theft, but malign influence. Commentary from Dakota Cary.

State legislature cyberattack linked to China

A long-running Chinese-linked cyberespionage group targeted a U.S. state legislature’s network in July, marking the outfit’s first confirmed attack against the U.S. in years, according to analysis published Thursday. The findings from the Symantec Threat Hunter Team point to a group the company refers to as Budworm. Other researchers call the group Bronze Union, APT27, Emissary Panda, Lucky Mouse and Temp.Hippo. The group has operated since at least 2013 and is known for targeting a wide range of industries “in support of its political and military intelligence-collection objectives.” AJ Vicens reports.

The big data problem underlying cybersecurity

Responding to cybersecurity threats for much of the past 30 years, says former Navy CIO Rob Carey, invariably meant managing a combination of firewall, intrusion detection and identity management tools — and a growing array of data. The problem, says Carey, now CEO of Cloudera Government Solutions, is that “the tools we use in cyber today … are not necessarily big data platforms that can deal with petabytes at a time, or even more, and still be effective.” Listen to the podcast.
