An Update from the Digital Threat Analysis Center
As noted in our last post from early October, Microsoft acquired Miburo as of July 1, 2022. Now, as the Digital Threat Analysis Center (DTAC), our team is closely collaborating with Microsoft’s robust cybersecurity, data science, and policy teams to help detect, assess, and disrupt digital threats to Microsoft, its customers, and democracies worldwide. We are thrilled to be part of a company firmly committed to protecting the internet, information integrity, and democracy.
As DTAC, we published our first public article on December 3. Written by DTAC leader Clint Watts and several teammates, the blog post, titled “Preparing for a Russian cyber offensive against Ukraine this winter,” examines Russia’s cyber assault targeting Ukraine, destructive cyberattacks extending outside of Ukraine, and cyber-enabled influence operations targeting populations across Europe to fuel real-world discord and undermine European support for Ukraine as the winter sets in.
DTAC Analysis on Substack
Our team will continue to publish analysis covering nation state cyber and influence operations here at Substack under the DTAC banner. You can subscribe to our Substack here. Headed into the new year, we have several new posts in the pipeline, including on recent and current influence operations from Russia, Iran, and China.
In 2023, this Substack will transition into a new publishing site with Microsoft, where subscribers of this Substack can continue keep up with DTAC analysis. Until then, the team’s work can be found here. Stay tuned.
