Graham on North Korean Cyber-Attacks

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on reports North Korea is behind the recent cyber-attacks against Sony Pictures Entertainment.

"Cyber-terrorism is increasingly becoming the weapon of choice for rogue regimes and terrorist organizations. The Commander-in-Chief should immediately put our enemies on notice that they conduct these attacks against our nation and interests at their own peril. We should make it clear to our adversaries that when they attack our American companies and government institutions they will be held accountable.

"Unfortunately, these latest attacks highlight our nation's vulnerabilities. Modernizing our cyber-security laws and working to protect our national interests against cyber-terrorism should be a top priority for Congress in the coming year. It's long overdue."
