Russian Global Hacking Campaign Backlash

In October several countries issued denunciations of Russia for running a global hacking campaign.  Russia denied the allegations, but there’s no denying that cyber attacks in general are frequently in the news and on people’s minds.  On March 7th, British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt plans to set out a doctrine of deterrence, “including economic and diplomatic counter-measures, to prevent cyber attacks that threaten to turn elections into tainted exercises.”  Hunt’s plan points out that cyber attacks are an incredibly attractive field for any adversaries of free elections.  They are a threat that must be taken seriously so that free societies everywhere can be protected.
