CYBER CONFLICT, ESPIONAGE, INFORMATION WARFARE, SABOTAGE
The C.I.A.’s assessment that Russia intervened in the presidential election is only the latest example of how cyber has become the perfect weapon – for everything from throwing elections to blowing up nuclear facilities.
No one in American journalism has investigated the emergence of this new age more vigorously than New York Times National Security Correspondent David E. Sanger, "We have seen Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and others use cyber as a new kind of weapon, ushering in a new kind of competition and conflict – and changing the world as surely as nuclear weapons did.”

Watch Sanger on Charlie Rose: Inside the Hack: How Russia Influenced U.S. Election
It is no surprise that David Sanger, known for his analysis of American foreign policy and national security, has spent more time on those topics with President-elect Donald J. Trump than any other reporter in the field. His work on cyber conflict and security story was the basis of the documentary thriller Zero Days – on the shortlist for the Oscar for best documentary of 2016. The film is based largely on his Times bestseller, Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and SurprisingUse of American Power.
A regular guest on Face the Nation, Charlie Rose, and Morning Joe, Sanger writes compelling front-page analyses from the White House and around the globe that expose and explain the complex events of our time.
