Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has included cyber attacks. We may not know the total extent of the cyber warfare against Ukraine yet but Russian hackers have been able to shutdown Ukraine’s electric system twice in the past.

It’s not just Ukraine that is a target. Russians have never stopped attacking American institutions, organizations and corporations, but may increase them now that the U.S. and Europe have imposed economic sanctions.

How safe are we from cyber attacks, what can be done to protect ourselves and our networks, and what should we look for?

Appearing on Tuesday’s Smart Talk with valuable information is Terrill Frantz, professor of Cybersecurity Operations and Management at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.
