Threat Intelligence Insight: Why Russia’s Cyber Threat To The UK Matters - Talion

What’s going on in Ukraine and what’s the risk to your business?

News broke last week that The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued new guidance for UK organisations, informing them of how critical it is to stay ahead of a potential cyber threat.

Due to escalating tensions between the two countries, there is now an increased risk that cyber attacks relating to the crisis in Ukraine could spill over the border as the conflict escalates.

Our Threat Intelligence team offer insight into the current Russia/Ukraine situation.

Russia Ukraine Conflict

What our Threat Intelligence Team says

Russia has long imposed a substantial cyber security threat against the UK and have been attributed to the most notorious ransomware strains across the threat landscape. They have carried out cartel style operations which have caused significant disruptions to critical infrastructure, sparking responses from global leaders. This has most recently included the arrests of REvil ransomware affiliates, subsequently raising tensions between global superpowers.

You can find out more about the recent REvil ransomware operation takedown by subscribing to our Threat Set Podcast for weekly insight. This podcast is run directly by our Threat Intelligence team and provides vital information on the evolving threat landscape.

Running parallel to operations like REvil are government backed groups, propagating cyber operations under the orders of their own government. World leaders across the globe now recognise the power in the creation of their own cyber-army, to run alongside their physical military capabilities.

Cyber-warfare is rapidly evolving, and UK businesses are increasingly exposed to being caught in the crossfire. All UK businesses should be prioritising their cyber defences against both criminal and state actors, to evade a destructive or bankrupting attack.
