During the Nixon years, Republican spies had to break into the Watergate Hotel to find out what the Democrats were doing. Now Russian cyber-warriors have penetrated the Democratic National Committee from thousands of miles away. They were caught in the act by CrowdStrike, a cyber security firm. Dmitri Alperovich is co-founder and CTO.
