WikiLeaks Publishes Files It Says Are Biggest Leak of Secret CIA Documents

"Tuesday’s document dump mirrors the one WikiLeaks carried out when it exposed cyber toolkits used by the National Security Agency, and frankly, is not that surprising of revelation at all, offers Richard Forno, assistant director at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County Center for Cybersecurity and director of the Cybersecurity Graduate Program.

“The big takeaway is that it shows the CIA is just as capable of operating in the cyberspace as the NSA,” Forno says. “I’m not sure everyone knew that.” The CIA’s cyber focus reinforces the idea that security in this domain is just as important as others for national security and solidifies the U.S. government’s commitment in the area, Forno offers."
