The National Intelligence Service said more than half of the stolen assets, or about $626 million, were stolen in 2022 alone, according to the Associated Press. Of the total stolen this year, more than $78 million went to South Korea. The agency expects that in 2023, North Korea will step up its cyberattacks on South Korea and focus on stealing advanced technologies related to nuclear plants, chips, and the defense industry.

“Marking the third year of its five-year economic development plan in 2023, North Korea is expected to seek to steal key technologies as well as gather diplomatic and security intelligence to further its political goals,” the National Intelligence Agency said. service.

North Korea has focused on cybercrime since UN economic sanctions were stepped up in 2017. However, according to South Korea’s main intelligence agency, this was in response to its nuclear and missile tests. In addition, the ability of North Korean hackers to steal digital assets is considered one of the most effective in the world.

Experts suggest that North Korea finances and oversees a division of high-class hackers. The total number of such specialists is estimated at approximately 7,000 people. One of the well-known cyber organizations associated with the DPRK is the Lazarus Group.

As of November this year, North Korea has conducted 34 weapons tests using 88 ballistic and cruise missiles. According to South Korean analysts, missile tests are funded in large part by such hacking activities. In November 2022, the country also tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles that experts say could hit anywhere in the US.
