Attacks and counter attacks

Hacker attacking internet

As you’ve seen, cyber attacks cost a lot of money.

There are tactics, and hypothetical tactics, at play from both the attackers and the attacked and what works in one situation may not work in the next.

Your task

Go back to the WIRED Guide to Cyberwar by Greenberg (2019). Choose one of the mentioned cyber war attacks and do more research into it, particularly on how the attack was handled and the subsequent consequences of the attack.

Share your findings in the comments.
