Georgia Ousts Hacker From Russia- Monitoring Spy Activity Since 2011

Georgia suspected he was a spy way back in 2011 and started to monitor his activities then.  While this is a victory today for the country of Georgia it also reveals a troubling problem with sophisticated adversaries that may take years to perform necessary actions to mitigate such a threat.  Read the full story online about how they caught the spy, including pictures of the man removed from Georgia.  To put this in context, Russian invaded the country of Georgia in 2008 which included a synchronized cyber-attack.  Three years after that physical invasion is where this story picks up, where they found a Russian spy inside their own country, removing him five years later in 2016.
