An exerpt from 60 Minutes, April 17
Dmitiri Alperovitch is well acquainted with Putin's tactics. As co-founder of the heavyweight cybersecurity company Crowdstrike, he helped trace the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee back to the GRU in Moscow. He currently is a member of the Homeland Security Advisory council. The Moscow-born Alperovitch has a theory why Putin hasn't launched a full scale cyberattack on the U.S. yet.
Dmitri Alperovitch: We have to let him know that you will not touch our
critical infrastructure without a response. And the way to do that, I think, i >through a cyber operation that can demonstrate our capabilities without lastin
damage. One of the ways you can do that, for example, is by taking Russia off the internet for a few hours. It won't cause any lasting impact, but it will
demonstrate the power of the United States Cyber Command, what we can do to hi
economy by disconnecting him, effectively, from the internet.
Bill Whitaker: We can do that?
Dmitri Alperovitch: We can absolutely do that. And we'll let him know that if he keeps going, if he keeps attacking us, we can make that permanent.
