Ukraine & Russia — Guidance on strengthening your cyber security
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, security bodies across the world are calling for organisations to bolster their online defences during a heightened cyber threat environment.
While governmental organisations such as the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) and The White House are not yet aware of any specific threats in relation to events in and around Ukraine, there is now evolving intelligence that Russia may be exploring options for potential cyberattacks.
There has been a historical pattern of cyber attacks against Ukraine which have had the potential to impact organisations outside of Ukraine, such as HermeticWiper — a wiper malware used against Ukrainian organisations that erases data from the hard drive of an infected computer.
Businesses are therefore being strongly encouraged to follow actionable steps.
Share quick tips with your staff to help strengthen cyber security
With human error playing a key part in the majority of successful cyber attacks, it's important to make sure that your employees are well-versed on how to detect and avoid online threats.
Using the advice from the NCSC, ACSC and The White House, we've put together this quick video that is free to download and share with your staff, which covers why there is a heightened threat and five ways to boost security.
