Robert Morgus, Brian Fonseca, Kieran Green, Alexander Crowther: Are China and Russia on
Offensive in Latin America and the Caribbean?
A Review of Their Cyber Capabilities and Implications
for the U.S. and its Partners in the Region
This report explores the current military cyber structures and operations of China and Russia in order to postulate how both countries could conduct cyber operations in Latin America and the Carribean, and their motivations for doing so. We look at key actors in each state to provide an overview of current capabilities, and use the DIME (diplomacy, information, military, economics) framework to assess how they might use cyber and information capabilities in pursuit of national objectives in the region.
