Putin’s Russia is a powerful beast with influences both visible and under the cyber wire. Two leading experts on the global impact of this superpower will be looking at what those influences are and how we can control them. Gordon Corera is the security correspondent for the BBC where he covers terrorism, cyber security, the work of intelligence agencies and other national security issues. In Putin’s People, the investigative journalist, Catherine Belton, reveals the untold story of how Vladimir Putin and the small group of KGB men surrounding him rose to power with stark consequences for Russians and, increasingly, the world.
