We were only 14 days into the new year when Ukraine was hit with a cyber-attack on government websites. This attack included government websites being knocked out. There was a message left on the foreign ministry website saying “Ukrainians! … All information about you has become public. Be afraid and expect worse. It’s your past, present and future.”
Websites were temporarily shut down and specialists immediately started restoring their IT systems. As a result, an investigation was opened. There were more than 70 websites effected, however luckily there was no personal data compromised in this attack.
As cyberattacks continue in the new year, businesses have been forced to implement a backup and disaster recovery plan. In the past year billion-dollar companies have fallen victim to these attacks, proving that no matter the size of a company, everyone is at risk. Ensuring you have policies in place for these situations and training your staff on how to react to an attack can reduce your companies down time significantly.
