In recent months and years, Ukraine has been the target of repeated and disruptive cyberattacks. Its energy, banking sector, and ministries were all subject to malicious operations. How well prepared is Ukraine to face such hostile overtures in the future? How should the international community respond, and what assistance can it provide?

At the same time, Russia remains highly vulnerable in its technology sector. How strongly will Western sanctions impact Moscow’s technological landscape? And how likely is Russia to overcome the huge challenge of providing alternative solutions to Western technologies in such key hard- and software sectors as microchip production, 5G solutions, operating systems, and cloud computing?
