Network Security: What Is Shields Up?

Network security experts across the country are warning that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could impact organizations beyond the region as well as within, including malicious cyber activity against businesses in the U.S.

Shields Up Is A Network Security Warning

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, or CISA, has issued a “Shields Up” warning, stating “Evolving intelligence indicates that the Russian Government is exploring options for potential cyberattacks. Every organization—large and small—must be prepared to respond to disruptive cyber incidents.”

“In the wake of continued denial of service and destructive malware attacks affecting Ukraine and other countries in the region, we are working very closely with our Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC) and international computer emergency readiness team (CERT) partners to understand and rapidly share information on these ongoing malicious cyber activities,” the CISA statement goes on.

Shields Up Best Practices

CISA is recommending that all organizations regardless of size follow Shields Up best practices to protect their most critical assets.
