State-Sponsored Cybercrime: A Growing Business Threat

You don’t have to be the size of Sony — or even mock North Korea — to be a target.

Sponsored hacks are no hit-and-run 
One thing that I’ve noticed is the almost “large organization” process oriented methodology of government-backed hacks. There’s no rush, they patiently wait and gather internal information and access servers and systems until they slowly start to extract information. Maybe working within the breached system for a year or two until the actual leak starts. If you, for instance, compare with ransomware type of operations that’s in there for the quick buck, these guys are more dangerous since there is no haste. No bills to be paid at home, that’s already been taken care of. 
The rationale behind the hack is still making profits but more in an abstract way, like providing intellectual property to your own industry to give them competitive advantages. 
It’s always more difficult to protect yourself from the people that have time to wait.
