US government agencies, think tanks and political groups should expect an increase in cyber espionage as countries like Iran try to grasp changing foreign and military policies under the new Trump administration, according to an executive with cybersecurity company FireEye Inc. 

Nations regularly spy on one another but with President Donald Trump espousing unconventional approaches to foreign policy, there is an heightened urgency to know what shifts may occur, according to John Hultquist, FireEye’s manager of cyber espionage analysis.
