Jeff Moss, founder of the Black Hat and DEF CON conferences, has highlighted the increasing risk of cyber attacks targeted towards weak points in cybersecurity by Russia and China. In an interview with ISMG, Moss discussed two geopolitical challenges currently facing the cybersecurity community: misinformation campaigns during major elections and a potential large-scale cyber attack on Taiwan by China in 2027. Moss underlined the increasing need for improved public-private sector information sharing as well as a move towards “an engineering mindset”. Furthermore, he stated that it is vital to understand specifically what is meant by “artificial intelligence” when discussing its applications in areas such as policy and technology development.

Key Points:

  • In the near-term, the cybersecurity community faces two geopolitical challenges: misinformation and disinformation campaigns during major elections and a potential Chinese cyber attack on Taiwan.
