Russia Is About to Disconnect From the Internet: What That Means

pcmag.com
  • Russia has implemented a long-planned internet bill that aims to close off all outside internet services, and replace them with Russian equivalents.
  • This could usher in similar legislation in other countries, possibly leading to “splinternets” -- an internet of multiple government-controlled, walled-off ecosystems.
  • Ultimately this harms the global, open nature of the internet, but Russia is unlikely to close off everything due to conflicts of business nature.
  • While the aim is to prevent cyber crime and war, some experts say due to the nature of cybersecurity, this might not be a strong solution.
