It anticipated some of the fights over the 2020 elections and the terrifying “SolarWinds” attack on the government and the private sector’s softwares. Directed by the Emmy-winning John Maggio, ”The Perfect Weapon” takes viewers deep into the cyber battles of the current age, interviewing current and former military and intelligence officials, while conducting new, on-the-ground reporting from the front lines of the cyber wars.
