“As the prospect of war looms over Europe, N.Y. officials assess local cyberthreat.”
Brian Taylor, professor of political science in the Maxwell School, was quoted in the New York Daily News article “As the prospect of war looms over Europe, N.Y. officials assess local cyber threat.” Taylor, an expert on Russian politics and international security, explained that there is also a potential of cyberthreat towards the United States after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
However, Taylor does believe that this would be a major escalation by Russia. “Things sometimes happen in war, where each side sort of ratchets it up. Then all of a sudden, they’re doing things that they wouldn’t have imagined at the beginning of the crisis,” Taylor said.
