Relying on IT Security Professionals to protect businesses from online downtime
As an armed conflict continues between Russia and Ukraine, Andy Barratt Coalfire UK managing director warns that a second line of warfare is likely – the cyber attack.
Any cyber attack on the West in response to co-ordinated support of Ukraine is unlikely to directly threaten the average business or organisation, but in the long term it could form the fingerprint for future attacks.
IT security experts should pay particular attention to how things unfold, state backed hackers offer a glimpse into the most up-to-date capabilities of cyber tactics.
These tactics will be watched intently by cyber criminals who will learn and emulate, making any business a possible target in the future.
Barratt said in an article for ComputerWeekly.com, “If you treat cyber criminals as a functioning business, their observation of national state activity massively enhances their own research into new attack techniques…… [and] once they have a workable mass exploit, they’ll use it on whoever they can.”
IT Security Professionals will have a key role, and be relied upon heavily in the coming months. They must watch intently, and stay current in their field if they’re to stay one-step-ahead of future threats to businesses.
