【The 31st Security and Strategy Seminar】CISS, AIIG Hold Seminar on Cyber Warfare in the Russia-Ukraine Conflict


On March 15, 2022, the Center for International Security and Strategy (CISS) and the Institute for AI International Governance (I-AIIG), both at Tsinghua University, held the 31st Security and Strategy Seminar entitled “Cyber Warfare in the Russia-Ukraine Conflict: Challenges and Responses.”


Panelists discussed the characteristics, patterns and new trends of cyber warfare in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the impact of hacking in the conflict on China’s cybersecurity, and the lessons learned and countermeasures for China to deal with future cybersecurity challenges. It was believed that although the latest cyber warfare in the Russia-Ukraine conflict has not escalated to one of high intensity, its new features and patterns merit continuing attention. The effects of this cyber warfare have been felt by China, raising alarm bells for us to think ahead and make provisions.



LIANG Zheng, vice dean of I-AIIG and professor at the School of Public Policy and Management at Tsinghua, made concluding remarks at the event, which was moderated by CHEN Qi, CISS deputy director, I-AIIG chief expert for international relations and professor of International Relations at Tsinghua.
