The arrest of Russian cybersecurity titan Ilya Sachkov

Josephine Wolff joins Meduza's "The Naked Pravada" Podcast, where she discusses the treason case against Ilya Sachkov, CEO of the cybersecurity firm Group-IB.

Our main story this week is the treason case against Ilya Sachkov, the 35-year-old CEO of the cybersecurity firm Group-IB. On Wednesday morning, September 29, hours after officials raided the company’s Moscow office, a local court jailed Sachkov for the next two months, pending trial. That will likely be extended several times, as the authorities collect more evidence. The Naked Pravda explores why Sachkov may have been arrested and asks what his case means for Russia’s cybersecurity industry and Moscow’s troubled cooperation with the United States against cybercrime.
