Russia cyberwar against Ukraine - SEQ Research 2022
The damage caused by cyber-attacks in the Ukraine war pales compared to the atrocities of the fighting on the ground. But that doesn't mean it's not happening or that civilians are safe.
Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a field has been left aside: that of cyberattacks, something that, for many experts, can be considered a fourth battlefield.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has disrupted the global economy, from food to energy. Still, it has also increased the number and sophistication of cyberattacks, exacerbating impacts similar to those of the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to analysts, the hackers who vandalized and interfered with access to a number of Ukrainian official websites may be laying the groundwork for more major hacks that would disturb the lives of regular Ukrainians.
Since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine on February 24th, the country's authorities and private sector organizations have been the target of a total of 796 cyberattacks, as reported by the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection, SSSCIP, by its acronym in English.
