Title: What do Russia’s cyberattacks and disinformation campaigns against Ukraine tell us about Russian cyber and disinformation operations against the U.S.?
Abstract: As U.S.-Russian relations have deteriorated since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Moscow has repeatedly threatened to retaliate against Washington for its support for Kyiv. Russia, however, is unlikely to fight the U.S. with planes, tanks, or missiles. Instead, Moscow will aim to strike the U.S. at the heart of its democratic values with trolls and hackers, targeting critical vulnerabilities in IT networks and attempting to manipulate the minds of U.S. citizens as part of its distinct approach to information warfare. This talk will draw lessons from Russia’s cyber and disinformation tactics against Ukrainian targets and will outline the types of potential cyber and disinformation operations that the U.S. can anticipate against U.S.-based organizations.
