Privacy group seeks to put faces on cyberattack victims
A privacy group launched a campaign Monday aiming to show the human toll that cyberattacks have taken on activists, businesses and institutions.
Why it matters: Scams have been taking a huge financial and operational toll on institutions around the world, but they are often downplayed, limiting public awareness.
Details: Digital Peace Now launched the #stillvulnerable campaign, highlighting the experiences of 10 different victims of cyberattacks.
- Heidi Kuhn, the CEO of nonprofit Roots of Peace, shares how her humanitarian group, which was doing work in Afghanistan, was tricked into wiring over $1 million to a Chinese bank account.
- Viktor Zhora, the deputy head of Ukraine's cybersecurity agency, talks about having to fight a digital war alongside a conventional one.
