This week, Russia approved the first vaccine against the Corona-Virus that causes Covid-19. Only a few weeks earlier, officials from both the US and the UK announced that a cyber attack originating from Russia was trying to steal Covid-19 related research. This example shows that cyber intelligence and even cyber warfare both are not science fiction anymore but very real.
We spoke with Prof. Panos Yannakogeorgos from New York University, who specializes in the geopolitical aspects of cybersecurity, about how cyber intelligence has evolved in the past. Also, we discussed the attack mentioned above and some reasons why it was made public, along with some outlooks on cyber intelligence for the future.
