Where in the world might the next cyberattack between nations take place?

A new online database developed by a team of Johns Hopkins University computer scientists and international studies students predicts that there is an "extremely high likelihood" of a Russian cyberattack on Ukraine.

The Cyber Attack Predictive Index devised by computer science professor Anton Dahbura along with cybersecurity lecturer Terry Thompson and former undergraduate Divya Rangarajan provides a predictive analysis of nations most likely to engage in the surreptitious strategy waged with keyboards, code, and destructive malware rather than soldiers, tanks and airplanes.
