Robert M. Lee on critical infrastructure attacks; and is LockBit back?

In recent months, U.S. security officials have issued a series of dire warnings about the hacking threat to American critical infrastructure. According to a chorus of intelligence officials, Chinese hacking groups have infiltrated U.S. critical infrastructure entities like ports and power grids, prepositioning themselves in the event of a conflict. But Chinese hackers are just one part of the threat landscape facing critical infrastructure entities. Dragos CEO Robert M. Lee is on the frontline of protecting critical infrastructure entities and he sits down with host Elias Groll to discuss how Chinese operations are shifting. CyberScoop reporter AJ Vicens joins the show to discuss claims by LockBit that the ransomware group has returned following last week’s takedown operation.
