Russia’s Open-Source Code and Private-Sector Cybersecurity Ecosystem

When analyzing Moscow’s cyber power, much of the policy community and international media focus on the Russian government’s internal cyber units and several criminal entities identified in the press. This overlooks a vast part of the Russian cyber ecosystem—including open-source code projects to which Russian developers contribute and the private-sector companies that help build talent, develop capabilities, and support state operations.

This talk, by Justin Sherman from Margin Research and its SocialCyber project, will describe its research findings in the areas of open-source code, foreign capability development, and foreign hacker communities—specifically focused on Russia.
