Hybrid war is on our doorstep, and Europe as we know it, might be at stake.

At the same time, reports of Ukrainian cities being under physical attack are reaching us. But; can this affect YOUR business and YOUR organization? Are there some preventing steps we need to take, some vital information we need to accept, to make sure that we still can operate safely, work as usual and even keep our daily life going? The answer is yes, yes and yes! Let us explain it a bit further.
Mychailo Fedorov, Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, now confirms that the country has been subjected to a new cyberattack. He declares on his Twitter account: "It was a tough night in terms of cybersecurity of Ukraine. We've been protecting our cyberspace all night. However, Ukraine is experienced and continues to counter non-stop attacks on main informational sources. As of now, everything operates stably. So keep calm, and don't panic."
Websites belonging to Ukrainian banks, the Ukrainian parliament and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are some of a large number of sites that are said to have been exposed to an overload attack on Wednesday the 23:d of February 2022. An extensive cyberattack on similar sites was also reported earlier in February.
