Be Prepared

As the conflict heats up in Ukraine it’s almost certain it will spill over into Cyberspace. Remember the NotPetya attack in 2017 and the attacks on Georgia and the Baltic States.

Even if you don’t think you are a strategic target you could still come under attack.

It could be as part of damaging the wider economy, via attacks on your suppliers that support other strategic targets, using your systems to attack your supply chain that also supports other strategic targets, to target high wealth directors, or simply collateral damage.

The NCSC has released the following Take Action guidance https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/news/uk-organisations-encouraged-to-take-action-around-ukraine-situation

I hope we pull back from the brink and my thoughts go out to all the innocents on all sides who will be harmed by this conflict.
