Ukraine, crypto, and cyber attacks
Russia’s aggression in Ukraine has coincided with a reduction in cyber attacks (and, tangentially, in crypto currency values).
Not what we expected.
Perhaps the “Fancy Bears” are distracted with trying to take down Ukraine’s IT systems and so there’s been less focus on attacking the rest of us? Just a guess, but in any case now is the time to review all the potential weak points in your cyber security plan.
They will be back, you can be sure of that!
If you haven’t got a cybersecurity plan: you don’t know how [in]secure you are. Get started on a plan now!
Covid made “zoom” a verb. Shorthand for online video meetings, “zoom” has become a household word. Now zoom can be your phone system too.
Building on the global infrastructure they put in to deliver high quality video, zoom have easily been able to add voice service that is just as clever at managing itself as the speed of your Internet connection changes second by second.
With direct, private peering with the world’s public telephone networks, zoom offers high levels of security for their phone service.
But, like everything else in the cloud: it’s only as secure as you configure it to be!
If (when) you do switch to an online phone system, get an expert in identity management to set it up properly.
Stay cybersafe at home too!
Cybersecurity doesn’t stop at the office door. Make sure your personal systems at home are protected too — you’re only as secure as your weakest point.
