Cha, who served as Asia policy director in the George W. Bush White House, said despite the long history of censuring North Korea over its weapons development, there's no diplomatic play book to follow in a case like the destructive hacking attack against Sony Pictures. "On the nuclear and missile side we have established a pattern of interactions between states on how to respond, but in the cyber world there's no rules right now," he said.

Cars enter and depart from Sony Pictures Entertainment studio lot in Culver City, Calif., Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014. Experts say the decision on Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014, to pull the film “The Interview” from theaters was inevitable after a group threatened violence against moviegoers who went to see the film. The 2012 massacre of movie patrons in Aurora, Colo., has led to 20 lawsuits and put theaters on notice that they face costly litigation if they’re targeted for mass violence, legal experts say. Sony canceled the movie's Christmas Day, Dec. 25 release. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
