Silent Chollima is a Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) adversary that has been active since at least 2009.

Early operations demonstrated both destructive and espionage components; however, Silent Chollima’s mission appears to have changed in 2015 following a significant reorganization of the DPRK’s government structure. Since this time, Silent Chollima has focused its efforts on collecting intelligence on government and military entities, as well as economic espionage operations targeting privately owned companies possessing technology that could assist the DPRK in the development of its economy.
