Cyberwarfare: Planes, trains and tanks
Modern warfare extends beyond physical boundaries to the digital. Nowhere is this more obvious than the war in Ukraine where cyber-attacks have been part of Russia’s arsenal from the beginning.
In this episode of The Next Stage we hear from one of the founding members of the US army's cyber command unit, Josh Lospinoso, who has gone on to found cybersecurity startup Shift5. Josh talks about digital threats new and old.
For example, he said the average iPhone is about one thousand times more secure than a trillion dollar fifth generation fighter like the F35. Meanwhile newer tech like Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite - which has been used by Ukraine military - is using older protocols that can be tracked using a shop bought kit costing only 25 dollars.
