The conflict in Ukraine is the biggest military conflict to take place in the digital age and the first in which such massive amounts of cyber operations have been used by all parties.
Experts from the Carnegie Endowment Jon Bateman, Nick Beecroft, and Gavin Wilde go over some of the most important takeaways from their brand-new series, “Cyber Conflict in the Russia-Ukraine War.” The Ukraine War is merely one of the numerous pertinent case studies. Cyber operations have been used in the past by militaries like Israel and the United States that have high levels of expertise, capacity, and preparedness in both kinetic and cyber warfare. However, even elite militaries seem to excel in cyberspace in highly confined situations. Overall, it appears that the strategic significance of cyber operations is inversely connected with the size of the war.
