Tyson Meadors, the director for cybersecurity policy for the National Security Council (NSC,) said Thursday that if North Korea ever decided to integrate with the world economy, it could be an outsize cybersecurity powerhouse.

Quote"If we brought North Korea into the rest of the economy of the world... they could be a relatively complementary partner in the global economy"
