Defending Ukraine: Lessons from the Hybrid War
ASIAL Security Conference
While it has been recognised for some time that cyber is the fifth domain of warfare alongside air, sea, land, and space. The Russian/Ukraine conflict has brought to the forefront the importance of cyber operations in modern day warfare, be that destructive cyber-attacks, cyber espionage or cyber influence operations. For many, this is the first time that the combination of kinetic and cyber operations has been observed operating in concert on a public stage, moreover, the introduction and participation of non-state actors, such as technology companies, has brought a new dimension to conflict in the interconnected world. In this session, Mark will provide an overview of the observations and lessons learnt from Microsoft’s engagement in the grey-zone of the conflict.
