Russia, China and Cyber: what does a divided internet mean for the world?

The global, borderless internet that a generation has envisaged is growing less and less global and borderless by the day. In fact, it’s becoming increasingly defined by geopolitical lines. This “balkanisation” of cyberspace takes many forms but seems immediately obvious in the recent focus of the US government on improving the integrity of its supply chain. Foreign technology providers including Huawei, ZTE and Kaspersky are just the first to find themselves in the firing line, but they certainly won’t be the last.
