The Russia-Ukraine Crisis: Implications for Cyber Security

calendarclock - (GMT)

Join us for a cyber briefing and experts’ discussion on the evolving situation in the Russia–Ukraine war and its implications for cybersecurity.


The West is at a heightened risk from Russian cyber-attacks. Since the first Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2014, Moscow has been accused of orchestrating numerous cyber-attacks against its neighbour. These have included two attacks on the Ukrainian power grid, fuelling concerns that Russia may extend the focus of its offensive cyber operations to NATO Allies.

The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority has advised banks to strengthen their defences against such attacks, and the National Cyber Security Centre has warned organisations to bolster their cybersecurity resilience in response to malicious cyber incidents in and around Ukraine over the past few weeks. The key issues addressed by the panel are:

  • The changing cyber threat landscape.
  • The heightened risk of cyber incidents, including the targeting of critical national infrastructure.
  • The role of non-state actors in cyber conflict.
  • UK and Western responses to cyber-attacks.
  • Technology dependencies with Russia.


The panellists are:

  • Dr Adrian Nish, RUSI Associate Fellow and Head of Cyber Propositions at BAE Systems
  • James Sullivan, Director, Cyber Research, RUSI
  • Sneha Dawda, Research Fellow in Cyber Threats and Cyber Security, RUSI
  • Jamie MacColl, Research Fellow in Cyber Threats and Cyber Security, RUSI


The webinar will be moderated by Conrad Prince, RUSI Distinguished Fellow and Senior Cyber Adviser.
