Organizations must take steps now to protect against Russian cyberattacks.
Notice of potential cyberattack activity
Due to increasing geopolitical tensions and the continuing escalation between Russia and Ukraine, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has issued a “Shields Up” advisory to U.S. organizations, which follows a recent related alert on mitigating Russian state-sponsored threats (AA22-011A). The advisory recommends that organizations immediately adopt a heightened cybersecurity posture in response to current threats. While no specific or targeted threats have been identified at the time of the advisory, CISA notes that cyberattacks might escalate as a way to distract and destabilize organizations in Ukraine.
