Cybersecurity researchers agree: Russia has increased hacking

by | Mar 8, 2022 | Security

Multiple cyber news sources and email protection vendors have warned of increased phish and spearphishing activity coming from Russian hackers since the attack on Ukraine. 

The strategies are largely the same as in the past: using phish emails or social networking with the intent of harvesting your credentials.  However, the volume of the attacks has increased.  Extra vigilance is encouraged at this time, because there is concern the methods employed will become more sophisticated or convincing. 

SpireTech offers a security awareness training program for your employees – including micro trainings, “autophish” automated phish testing, employee secure score, dark web monitoring, and more.  This program can also help meet certain cyber insurance employee awareness requirements.  Please let us know if you are interested in learning more about strengthening your employee security posture.
