DIG this week's cyber tip


Last week U.S. officials issued a warning of potential cyberattacks due to the Russia/Ukraine conflict. All U.S. organizations are at risk of a cyberattack because of two reasons:

  • Malware designed in Russia against Ukraine may spill over to affect U.S. entities

  • Russia could target U.S. organizations in retaliation for U.S. sanctions against them.




To better protect your organization from these expected attacks:

  • Ensure your systems are patched against known vulnerabilities. Check the CVE or CISA Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog for critical patches.

  • Check for existing threats in your network using endpoint detection or threat hunting tools.

  • Configure your intrusion detection and intrusion protection systems to detect suspicious activity.

  • Ensure your firewall is properly configured.

  • Ensure you have multifactor factor authentication (MFA) deployed and in use. This is especially important for internet-facing logins.


To learn more about better securing your organization, contact the DIG.

Thank you,

The DIG Team
