<p>Cybersecurity and Russian diplomacy are two pressing issues faced by the incoming administration, and they both converge in the SolarWinds attack. While most countries have an offensive and defensive program around cyber security, no one has defined when cyber conflict becomes cyber war, and when cyber attacks escalate to kinetic attacks. It\’s a positive development to see President-elect Biden focusing on this attack, but I would encourage the same attention be brought to cybersecurity more generally, and that it be done with guidance from both the public and private sector.</p>
