Nation-State Cyber Threats on the Rise? Stay Out of the Crossfire


In the modern era, cyberspace has become the new front on which a unique type of warfare is being waged. Nation-state cyber threats - defined as cyberattacks carried out by foreign nation-states such as Russia or North Korea - are on the rise, and many private organizations are unfortunately finding themselves in the crossfire. In 2014, for example, Sony Pictures was targeted by a North Korean cyberattack after the regime took issue with the company releasing The Interview. Last year, the SolarWinds hack carried out by Russia compromised federal agencies and private organizations alike.

The Remote Work Challenge for Tech Security


Since March 2020, the reliance on tech for office productivity and general work has dramatically skyrocketed. Due to a pandemic’s requirement for social distance, just about every reasonable tech tool in the workplace has been pushed, stressed, redirected, and repurposed to make remote work a reality. And, along with all the new connections and devices coming online in many networks, so did the number of vulnerabilities and opportunities for hacks, security risks, and cyberthreats.
