Security agencies release alert on foreign cyber threats

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, FBI and the National Security Agency have recently issued an alert titled “Understanding and Mitigating Russian State-Sponsored Cyber Threats to U.S. Critical Infrastructure“.

It is a valuable addition to your bank’s cyber toolbox and includes mitigation tactics as well as a technical history of these state-sponsored actors. Detection and incident response are also covered in detail.

A Rewards for Justice Program has been established with a potential of up to $10 million for identifying or locating persons acting under control of a foreign government participating in malicious cyber activity against critical infrastructure. We hope our best cyber experts will take on this challenge and reduce future intrusions.
