In this special episode, we sat down with Rex Lee, cybersecurity adviser at My Smart Privacy. He sheds light on tech-based hybrid warfare, what hybrid warfare is, and how technology is integrated. Lee says: "People don't realize that any app, whether it's developed by Google, ByteDance from China, Baidu from China—which is an Android app developer and a Google partner—or Prisma Labs from Russia—which is the most popular photo editing app in the world, which is Prisma Photo Editor—any of these apps are basically legal malware. All apps today enable the developers to surveil and data mine the end user." "It's not just attacks on networks. These bad actors can also gain financial information, gain access to banks, gain access to banking accounts, and drain this money digitally, as well as launch ransomware attacks and hold cities, governments, and corporations, hold them hostage until they get paid the ransom. So it's a broad spectrum of attacks. This is actual warfare. We are at war, and we're at cyber war. But it's unofficial because it hasn't been declared war yet," he added.
