Acts of War? Accountability for Cyberattacks in Ukraine

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022
from 12:30 to 1:30 PM EST

This webinar is jointly organized with the Stimson Center

As the international crisis over Ukraine grows, experts are working to gather information about the cyberattacks on Ukraine. The January 2022 attacks used a multi-pronged strategy, crippling over 70 government websites while selectively deploying wiper malware disguised as ransomware. Destructive cyberattacks usually occur around geopolitical fault lines, and the Ukrainian secret service has identified Russia as the attacker. Who is in a position to credibly identify who did it? What are the political consequences of attribution? When do attacks become an act of war?
