CompTIA ISAO and IT-ISAC Urge Technology Companies to Elevate Cybersecurity Monitoring, Readiness in Response to Rising Geopolitical Tensions

“Although we do not have any information that indicates a specific threat, we believe that we should all be on high alert,” said M.J. Schoer, Chief CompTIA Officer and Executive Director of CompTIA ISAO. “We urge technology companies to step up monitoring of their networks, as well as their customers and partners, for any signs of suspicious activity.”

Companies need to prepare for a number of potential cyberattacks, including attacks on corporate networks; the customer networks they protect; networks of key partners or suppliers; critical infrastructure sectors; and platforms used by individual citizens.

“We don’t intend to be overly anxious,” Shur said. “We do not predict that the enemy of the nation state will make a significant cyber attack. But it is wise to prepare and plan for the possibility of destructive cyberattacks. “

Executive Director of IT-ISAC Scott Algiers He added: “The actors of the nation-state have a long history of attacks on critical US infrastructure. We must be prepared for them to deploy additional opportunities in times of heightened tensions and potential conflict.”

The CompTIA ISAO and IT-ISAC teams will continue to provide updated reports and share new threat information as it becomes available.

IT-ISAC members use the IT-ISAC intelligence management platform, enemy attack tutorials, and secure collaboration channels to share threat information.

CompTIA ISAO members are encouraged to follow and share information through the organization’s cyberforum. CompTIA ISAO has also opened a public topic to assist the entire industry in discussing and responding to any attacks that may be the result of current tensions.
