Recent reports suggest Russia is ramping up its virtual war against Ukraine. Could the conflict be at a turning point? It's just over a year since the start of the Ukraine War. This #BCSPolicyJam will take another look at the role of cyber-security, hacktivism, and disinformation in the conflict.
Last spring, the #BCSPolicyJam put together a talented team of cybersecurity experts to discuss these issues. The same panel, a couple of additional guests, including one from Ukraine, will discuss where we are now.
Join us online on Thursday, April 6th, at midday. We look forward to your questions and comments.
Policy Jams are held monthly and previous Jams can be watched here
