Pyongyang has around 3-thousand more cyberwarfare personnel than they had two years ago for a team of nearly 59-hundred, according to an unnamed military source.
That may not seem like much when compared with the 80-thousand cyberoperations personnel in the U.S., but put the number of elite hackers side by side and Pyangyang surpasses Washington., 12-hundred to 900.
North Korea trains some 100 cyberwarriors per year at Mirim University, founded in 1986.
In contrast, South Korea, often the target of such cyberattacks, only has around 400 professionals in its Cyber Command to guard against such aggressions.

We live a digital world now. Activities can and are monitored. It's all about controlling people. The New World Order. EVERYONE will be monitored by RFID chips and GPS I believe.

Revelation 13:16-17
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
