Beers With Talos : Episode 126

The intricacies of cyber conflict in Ukraine

At the onset of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, many experts and government officials expected there to be two fronts of the war — one on the ground in Ukraine and one in cyberspace. But all things considered, we haven’t seen as much offensive cyber warfare come from either side of this conflict this year. J.J. Cummings from Talos Threat Intelligence and Interdiction joins the show again to share his experience from working hands-on with networks in Ukraine. He, Lurene, Mitch and Matt discuss why there haven’t been as many offensive attacks as we were expecting, or if they’re just happening in the background and no one’s talking about it.

Other suggested talking points include:

  • What is the “Texas” of other continents?
  • Drama inside the Conti ransomware gang.
  • Why Matt definitely doesn’t spend too much time on Twitter.
  • How sad should we be about the Queen of England dying?
