Russia Ukraine Situation

The Russia Ukraine Situation Shows Cybercrime is an Information Governance Problem: Information Governance Trends

This week’s blog post for IPRO’s blog is about the Russia Ukraine situation from a different perspective – the potential cybercrime ramification, and how that impact affects not just corporations in the US, but potentially US government entities as well.

Many of us are keeping an eye on the Russia Ukraine situation these days and the situation seems to get more serious, not just daily, but hourly. The situation has worldwide ramifications in just about every way possible, including economically and (of course) the potential toll on human lives, which has become actual toll on human lives since I wrote the IPRO post.

When it comes to the Russia Ukraine situation, Russia has been battling with Ukraine for years, not just recently. And the conflict hasn’t just been on the battlefield; it has also been in cyberspace as well. In 2017, a cyberattack impacted not just Ukrainian interests, it also affected interests around the world, including the US. And that was an attack that wasn’t even directed at US interests.

Russian hackers targeted Ukraine sites again just last month. Given the current tensions and the potential for the West to get involved in the conflict (with sanctions against Russia already imposed and now increased), it’s not a stretch to expect that US government sites could be targeted as well.

So, what are the details behind the two Russian cyberattacks 4 1/2 years apart? And how does the Russia Ukraine situation become an information governance problem for US government entities? You can find out on IPRO’s blog here. Let’s pray for peace, everybody.

So, what do you think? How do cybersecurity and information governance relate in your organization? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
