Rob Joyce, director of cybersecurity at the National Security Agency, said Russian government and government-backed hackers persist in attacking Ukrainian information technology systems as part of their invasion of the country.

One focus is closed circuit TV cameras used by local authorities and private businesses to monitor their surroundings, he said.

“There are creative things going on. We are watching the Russian hackers log into public-facing webcams to watch convoys and trains delivering aid,” he said.

“They are also hacking those webcams … And instead of using the town square (cameras) that are available to the internet, they’re looking at the coffee shop security camera and seeing the road they need to see,” he said.

“They are under daily pressure from the Russians,” he said.
