Russia's Approach to Cyber Warfare

Russia's Approach to Cyber Warfare

Russia views cyber very differently than its western counterparts, from the way Russian theorists define cyberwarfare to how the Kremlin employs its cyber capabilities. The paper examines the Russian approach to cyber warfare, addressing both its theoretical and its practical underpinnings. 

Michael Connell, one of the two authors who wrote this insightful whitepaper, will be speaking at the upcoming Cyber Security for Defense Summit. Michael Connell is an expert in Persian-Gulf security-related issues, the armed forces of Iran, U.S.-GCC security cooperation, and adversary cyber policy and strategy. He has served as CNA's Field Analyst to Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT). Prior to joining CNA, Connell was an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army. Connell has a Ph.D. in History and Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard University and a B.A. in Near East Studies from Brandeis University. He speaks Persian and French.
