After decades of playing defense, the United States government went on the offense in the past few years against global state-sponsored cyber attackers. U.S. Cyber Command conducted “hunt forward” operations recently in 16 countries, including in Ukraine, as part of a policy set in 2018.
This policy involves partnering with foreign countries on finding cyber threats against them. The idea is that, instead of the U.S. and its smaller allies each facing common adversaries alone, they do so together. The U.S. provides more resources and its allies provide access to its critical networks. What can cybersecurity teams working with other organizations learn from their tactics?
