UK Government: Ukraine-Russia cyber war will spill over; businesses must act to stay safe

Businesses advised to be more “aggressive” by restricting network access to devices in the wake of the cyber war between Ukraine and Russia. Governments have published numerous advisories warning businesses of the increased risk of spill over cyber-attacks from the ongoing cyber war. Being aggressive with security can help keep out adversaries, currently scanning businesses for weak points that have network access, Cisco’s experts said at Cisco Live 2022.

Too many businesses are allowing old and disused products, such as collaboration software to retain access to the network and exploiting these can lead to organisation-wide cyber-attacks, they said using ‘out-of-the-box’ default protections are not good enough.
