The Rīga-based NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence (STRATCOMCOE) will be hosting another of its online discussions on December 2, this time with Russia firmly in focus.

Titled "Russia's strategy and activities in cyberspace", the discussion will feature Oscar Jonsson, Academic Director of the Center for the Governance of Change at IE University, and Bilyana Lilly, a Pardee RAND Graduate School Fellow, with moderation from renowned Latvian journalist Olga Dragiļeva.

"Reports on cyber-attacks linked to Russia are not rare in daily news," says advance publicity material, "From the damage done by NotPetya or operations against Ukraine and Georgia, to Russia’s hacking and leaking operations in the US and European countries’ elections, states struggle to adapt to threats in cyberspace.

"The webinar will explore how Russia is using cyberspace for influence activities in the framework of its 'information confrontation' and will discuss the extent, purposes and strategic implications of Russian cyber capabilities," the organizers say.

The discussion will be livestreamed on December 2 at16:00 Rīga time (GMT+2) on STRATCOMCOE's Facebook and YouTube channels.
