Cyber criminals from Eastern Europe present a more sophisticated information security threat to Western firms than their rivals in East Asia, according to a surprising new assessment of the global threat landscape by a former White House cyber security advisor. Peter the Great vs. Sun Tzu is a new report from Tom Kellerman, …

Eastern European attacks a legacy of high quality science and maths education?

Maybe it's a cultural thing. There are certainly lots of top maths and computer science graduates in China. These people seem to be going into bona fide research rather than being swept into the hands of criminal gangs due to poor employment prospects,
Presumably, Mr Kellerman has read Sun Zi (in translation)
as by limiting the comparison to teams operating in Eastern Europe and China, respectively, he manages to ignore - and likely, get the rest of us to ignore - the six-tonne elephant in the room, viz, the US government. Way to go !...
