CyberWar Map in the News


By TIM STARKS, June 7, 2018

OOOH, PRETTY — If you’re looking for a database of state-sponsored cyberattacks, George Washington University’s National Security Archive has you covered. The website on Wednesday launched CyberWar Map, which offers a lovely map linking advanced persistent threats, or APTs, to the countries believed to sponsor them, the campaigns they’ve launched and the targets they’ve hit. The page for APT 29, for example, identifies it as a Russian-sponsored group that has participated in the Grizzly Steppe campaign of interfering in the U.S. election. Scrolling over to the left, meanwhile, will show that both China’s TempTick group and Russia’s Turla team have been spying on the negotiations around North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. “The complexity of the field makes it increasingly challenging to conceptualize a ‘bird’s eye view’ of the cyber-battlefield,” wrote Michael Martelle of the National Security Archive. “Therefore, the topic lends itself especially well to a dynamic graphic representation.”
