When it comes to international cybersecurity issues, you have to credit Russia for its baldfaced hypocrisy. The fox, as it were, has just managed to get itself elected chairman of the committee to protect the henhouse.
Last week, with little notice, Russia won approval from the U.N. General Assembly for its resolution to begin drafting a new global treaty to combat cybercrime. Yes, that’s right, the country that hacked the 2016 U.S. presidential election and various European campaigns is now leading the process to write international rules about hacking.
What’s the Russian word for “chutzpah”?
