@thegibson I'd break the question into a few parts:
- WHO or WHAT represents a threat? Actors.
- What MECHANISMS does that threat manifest as?
- What ACTIVITIES contribute to this?
- What specific RISKS are prresented?
Possibly a few others, though I'll try to hit on these points.
@thegibson ... Jamal Khashoggi, Jeff Fucking Bezos ... have all had data breached.
The Panama Papers, Mossack Fonseca, Paradise Papers, Implant Files, etc., etc.
Not as devastating as many may have hoped, but painful all the same.
But yes: The Powerful and The Establishment are getting their buts kicked and are paranoid.
And The World's Richest Man can't keep his smartphone secure.
Just ponder that for a few minutes.
Yes, that may be, but the larger point is that they may be technically vulnerable but not otherwise, not in terms of power. Exposure is not significant to rich people because of their power, they are not impacted much, they do not suffer consequences.
