Once upon a time, the rules were simple.
Strategic cyber operations were led by government hackers hidden away in giant, windowless buildings. When organized cybercrime groups came onto the scene, they mainly focused on profitable targets like corporations and tried to avoid public targets that would attract too much attention, such as critical infrastructure and governmental systems.
However, the Ukraine-Russia War tossed all these “rules” out the window.
Today anyone, including the stereotypical hacker in a hoodie working out of their parent’s basement, can join in on a cyber war. As the Ukraine-Russia War rages on, more and more people from around the world are joining the conflict from the comfort of their own home.
