US intelligence making a case to renew sweeping communication surveillance powers granted under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act - set to expire this year

"FISA Section 702 is irreplaceable" @CYBERCOM_DIRNSA Gen Paul Nakasone told @PCLOB_GOV Thursday
#FISA establishes rules US intelligence agencies when surveilling foreign powers and agents

Section 702-added in 2008-allows for targeted surveillance of electronic communications of foreign persons outside of the US

BUT critics argue it subjects Americans to unlawful searches
US intel officials, like @CYBERCOM_DIRNSA, call #FISA Section 702 a critical tool

Sec. 702 "plays an outsized role in protecting the nation, providing some of the US gvt's most valuable intelligence on our most challenging targets...It provides unique information w/minimal risk"

What Russia will do in #cyberspace in #Ukraine and potentially in Europe, #Microsoft's thoughts and estimates.
Some highlights from the article:

What has already been done: "Cyberattacks on Ukrainian and now foreign-based supply chains, and cyber-enabled influence operations—intended to undermine #US, #EU, and #NATO political support for Ukraine.
Russian military operators also expanded destructive cyberactivity outside Ukraine to #Poland, a critical logistics hub, in a possible attempt to disrupt the movement of weapons and supplies to the front."

(2/10) What is #cryptocurrency? ⚡
Cryptocurrency is a #decentralized #digitalasset that exists on the blockchain. 🌐 It is not controlled by any authority but solely belongs to its owner.

#Crypto being decentralized implies that it runs on a peer-to-peer relationship. 🤝
(3/10) There is no need for a third party to intervene in a #transaction; it is based on a peer-to-peer relationship.

The currencies are stored in virtual platforms called #digitalwallets. But why are #cryptocurrencies named like this? 🤔💱

Ziekenhuizen zijn allesbehalve immuun voor rampspoed. Integendeel: ze zijn minstens zo kwetsbaar als de samenleving die zij dienen.

Rampen en crises binnen ziekenhuizen komen regelmatig voor. Sinds enkele jaren doe ik daar onderzoek naar.

Een 🧵 over #ziekenhuisrampen 🏥💥🔥🌊
Mijn interesse voor dit onderwerp kwam niet helemaal uit de lucht vallen. Of eigenlijk juist wel 😬

In 2017 kwam het plafond van onze SEH naar beneden. Gelukkig vielen hierbij geen doden of gewonden, maar het incident opende mijn ogen. Een onderzoekslijn was geboren 🧑‍🔬
Al van jongs af aan ben ik gefascineerd door rampen.

De tsunami in 2004, ik was 1e jaars geneeskundestudent, heeft een onuitwisbare indruk op mij gemaakt. Wat wilde ik die mensen graag helpen. Maar ik kon nog helemaal niks.

De behoefte om iets te doen is gebleven.

#UkraineWar: UK, US, and EU officially blame #Russia for #cyber attack targeting #satellite company BEFORE tanks rolled across the border. This reveals 2 critical issues 1/3 (a short threat)…
1. #Russia's military strategy: #cyberattacks (may) precede conventional military maneuvers. Hence, monitoring cyberspace for disruptive/significant cyber incidents can serve as a warning indicator before a military invasion.
#UkraineRussiaWar #Ukraine #cyber
2. #Russia's top military targets & priorities: establishing information superiority and disrupting communication channels is a primary step in the onset of war
