LI Tech provides cyber warfare protection services for organizations on Long Island. Speak with our team of cyber warfare experts.
Cyberwarfare today is a serious game of measures and countermeasures. Many people think of cybersecurity on a personal or organizational level. But the war of cybersecurity is also being fought across national lines.
In 2020, it was found that Russian intelligence officials were behind the SolarWinds breach that compromised and exposed multiple Government agencies; including Homeland Security. During this time, there were 90 days before the hack was discovered where Russian cybercriminals had free access to many key US government systems. There is a profound likelihood that there are still breaches and malware embedded in critical systems that we have not yet discovered.
This king of cyber warfare cannot be overlooked, but it will also make us stronger.
Right now, the one thing everyone knows about the digital world is that cyber-attacks are everywhere - and they are relentless. Social hackers will phish and catfish, infected sites will spread the infection, and the rare few live hackers in the mix will seek new vulnerabilities to teach the malicious mob of half-talented cyber-mercenaries.
Fortunately, protecting ourselves on all sides at all times has its advantages. As a whole, the business world is growing stronger. We are already honing agile security measures to make and install security patches as fast as hackers can find vulnerabilities. We take our backups, we do our employee drills, and we eat our cyber-Wheaties in the morning because every day is another day patrolling the firewall.
These virtual battles, however, have a real-world impact on our country's infrastructure, financial and communications systems.
The constant-threat environment we find in the digital world is not just a rising tide of mischievous "hackers". It's an organized force.
What Russia and other bad actors want you to think is that the rise in data attacks are random uprisings of bad apples. In truth, many are hired and directed to weaken the governments and businesses of "enemy" nations. As SolarWinds so clearly revealed, massive and broad-scale attacks have been perpetrated and there is almost no chance that we have found 100% of the breaches and embedded bugs from that hacking project alone.
Right now, every organization, agency, and business is under constant threat from an organized cyber warfare force - not just malicious middle schoolers and angry incels. While there are a few of those, the real and large-scale threats come from organized and well-funded hacking teams, often offshore and all-too-likely to be the Russian government, itself.
