State-sponsored and private cyberattacks? An everyday concern! With the number of damage reports growing worldwide, and the EU elections on the horizon, cybersecurity is more relevant than ever.

  • Isabel Skierka, Research Analyst at the Digital Society Institute (ESMT Berlin) and Non-resident Fellow at the Global Public Policy Institute
