Steps to Mitigate Potential Cybersecurity Consequences of the War in Ukraine

In the context where CISOs along with their European and global teams are or might be experiencing cybersecurity effects of the war in Ukraine, Forrester recommended some cybersecurity steps that should be followed.

The National Cybersecurity Authority’s Advice Should Be Followed

You should follow the advice of your national cybersecurity authority, but if you do not benefit from this information, you can refer also to the sources mentioned below.

Through its Shields Up effort, a place where you can get the most recent information on the conflict’s current status, CISA has previously warned of growing attacks on key infrastructure and defense industrial bases.

Advice on this topic comes also from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in the UK. Other organizations, including the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA), Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), and France’s National Cybersecurity Agency (ANSSI), have issued warnings, and an EU cyber unit has been dispatched to assist Ukraine.

An urgent alert was issued by the Australian Cyber Security Centre too to provide guidance.
