In this episode of the Stratfor Essential Geopolitics podcast from RANE, we break down the implications of the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline. Within days, the ransomware cyberattack was having a major impact on fuel supplies to the East Coast. But it disrupted more than fuel supplies. Emily Donahue gets insight from Stratfor Senior Global Analyst at RANE Matthew Bey into the significance of the attack and the reactions it might prompt from government and businesses in the United States.
