Previously, US National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster at the Munich Security Conference announced that the US is ready to begin a dialogue with Russia on cybersecurity, "if Russia is serious about stopping this kind of espionage".

The cooperation on cybersecurity between Russia and the United States was actively developing in the period from 2009 to 2013. However, since 2014, the cooperation has been suspended, due to the Ukrainian crisis, with alleged Russian interference in this conflict and Crimea's reunification with Russia.
