Ukraine Conflict: Cybersecurity Protections

The conflict in Ukraine is increasing the threat of Russian cyberattacks against American businesses. The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released guidance on how US businesses should bolster their cyber defenses.

What should I do?

While there are no specific, credible threats at this time, CISA’s “Shields Up” guidance outlines specific actions businesses of all sizes should take to be prepared if this volatile situation changes. The highlights of those recommendations include:

  • Enable Multifactor Authentication
  • Ensure all software is up to date, especially patching known vulnerabilities
  • Empower IT to quickly investigate unusual network behavior
  • Lower suspicious activity reporting thresholds to leadership and the government
  • Designate a crisis-response team
  • Test backup and business continuity capabilities
  • Empower your IT security leader with decision making authority

Read CISA’s complete recommendations for improving defenses against retaliatory Russian cyberattacks.
