Ukraine & Russian Conflict

Hi All

 

This is a perspective based on the current conflict with the Ukraine and Russia and the implications across the world.

What does it mean for your business?

 

Are you prepared?

 

Does your management understand the threats and the potential impacts?

This is an interview with Robert Lee of Dragos, regarding the potential Cybersecurity Risks associated with the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

He cautions that OT/ICS/CIS could be at risk.

 

If you have five minutes, it is a good interview.

Hi All

 

Due to circumstance beyond our control and apparently G7, NATO with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, suddenly new tools are brought to the fore and techniques.

 

It is important you keep a close watch on the circumstances, and how it may impact many organisations around the world, as this descructive malware is used and possible aimed at nations as well.

 

Keep a good watch on developments.  Many of us have never witnessed a live cyber-war, lets hope it does not descend into a world wide one.

Mandiant has posted a Brighttalk webcast related to the potential of Cyber attacks by Russia which includes some conversation related to Sandworm (NotPetya).

Hi All

 

Another interesting angle has turned up upon research, that of Supply Chains and Russia's strategy to control Wheat supplies, which may have longer term issues to many countries dependent on supplies from Ukraine.

The analysis is an interesting read, what do you think?

Apparently the Ukraine government has asked for hackers to help protect their cyber space.

And it seems that Anonymous may be responding.

and a second article

I think they are ready to ask even the devil for help.

 Hi All

 

Now this is an impact probably most people and organisations did not expect:  Ukraine holds half the world's Neon supplies for the manufacturing of Semiconductor chips:

What impact will this have, if the Russian's take over the country and the delays caused to projects and the ordering of hardware globally?

@dcontestiWell Conti apparently have sided with the Russians, and are prepared to attack the Western Nations, if they mount cybersecurity attacks against Russia.
