Tension in Ukraine Raises Concerns Over Cyber Attacks

by | Feb 17, 2022 | Thought leadership

As the situation in Ukraine continues to develop, concerns have been raised about the potential for an escalation in cyber attacks emanating from Russia.

Several weeks ago, the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) issued guidance urging “UK organisations to bolster their cyber security resilience in response to the malicious cyber incidents in and around Ukraine.”

Speaking to the Metro this week, Glasswall CEO, Danny Lopez, commented, “The majority of UK businesses are not prepared for the ferocity of cyber-warfare that would be unleashed if Putin decided to step up cyber-attacks.”

“Having 150,000 troops by a border is a significant threat, but I cannot overemphasise how brutal a cyber-attack could be too.”

Looking at the recent Denial of Service attacks directed at Ukrainian banks and government departments, he said: “That multiplied by 10 could bring a country to its knees for a significant amount of time.”

“You can do that with every bank, utility companies, government departments that offer critical services and infrastructure to people.”

Asked by The Guardian about the potential for further attacks, he commented:

“Cyber-attacks could now play an important role, to keep the pot warm on the stove but not spilling over into actual conflict.”

Raising the bar on file security

We believe people should be free to open their files without fear. To click on anything without risk of catastrophe. To use systems the way they were meant to be used. That’s why we’re raising the bar on file security at Glasswall.
