TYSONS CORNER, VA, Jan. 3, 2017 — Steve Grobman, Intel Security‘s chief technology officer, has said that retaliating against Russia’s alleged cyber hacking of the U.S. elections could escalate to war, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.
The Obama administration’s response could range from additional economic sanctions, indictments, information leaks on Russian politicians and business leaders to restring Russian diplomats in the country, Venturebeat.com reported Thursday.
“Impacting digital infrastructure beyond the intended target opens the door to draw additional nation states into a conflict, ” Grobman said.
“This increases risk to civilian populations as countries see the need to retaliate or escalate.”
