cedric_leightonIn this episode, we are speaking to CNN analyst and retired U.S. Air Force Col. Cedric Leighton. The real world and the cyber world are converging. Criminal elements are increasingly turning to cybercrime. And nation-state hackers continue to look for what is next.

@ 34:49 Leighton says: "We will know that the Chinese, the Russians, the North Koreans, even the Iranians are going to continue to be active in cyberspace. They will take advantage of new work modes that may outlast the coronavirus pandemic. And those new work modes lead to new vulnerabilities. There's new vulnerabilities will lead to new methods of exploitation by these and other bad actors."
