The Russia-Ukraine Cyberwar [ML B-Side]

Before it invaded Ukraine, Russia was considered - and rightfully so - a cyber superpower. But a month and a half into the war, the lights in Ukraine are still on, as well as cellular communications and other important infrastructure. Lior Div (Cybereason's CEO), Yonatan Striem-Amit (CTO & Co-founder), and Sam Curry (CSO), talk about what we learned so far about the conflict - and what we might see in the future.
