Details continue to emerge surrounding the Russian hack on the Democratic National Committee.

CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm which first attributed the hack on the DNC to Russia, released another report last week further connecting Russia to the attack. The report links the malware used on the DNC to malware used by the Russian military to hack Ukrainian fighters and track their position. The hack, known as Fancy Bear, infected a smartphone app, which was used by up to 9,000 of the troops.

With new cyber threats popping up all of the time, changing the face of politics and war, some security experts are calling for better cyberdeterrence, as part of a more comprehensive cybersecurity strategy.

Chris Demchak, professor at the U.S. Naval War College, and RADM Grace M. Hopper Chair of Cybersecurity joins to help us understand what having better cyberdeterrence entails.
