WASHINGTON – Tom Bossert, a former senior homeland security adviser to Trump, predicted that Iran will likely carry out cyber attacks in the coming weeks as tensions between Tehran and Washington remain high.

Bossert, who is now the chief strategy officer at Trinity Cyber Inc., a cyber-security company, made the comments Thursday in an interview with Bloomberg News.

Prior to serving as a security adviser to President Trump, Bossert was a fellow at the Atlantic Council. He also served as Deputy Homeland Security Advisor to President George W. Bush.

Bossert also said during the Bloomberg interview that he thought Iran would try to blame the U.S. for the crash of a Ukrainian airplane that occurred near Tehran shortly after Iran had launched missile attacks against two U.S. military outposts in Iraq.
