The DOJ has just linked Iranian information operations that FireEye publicly reported in 2018 to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran’s aggressive security service. The IRGC is very comfortable with asymmetric tools and they have increasingly adopted cyber capabilities as a means to disrupt and manipulate their enemies abroad. Iran has become a prolific actor in the information operations space and similar to their cyberattack capability, they have evolved over a series of brash operations.
