Obama administration is nearing the announcement of imposing economic sanctions towards Russia, because of interfering with the recently concluded elections.

Security measures may include cyber-operations, and this could mean cyberwar.

With rampant cyber attacks and other security breaches happening local and national, how do we actually prove that they are done by Russians? When it is easy to hide traces over the internet, starting with the simple use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

These, and more tech related and timely updates discussed this week. Including our year-end roundup of tech that made the news.
