Ukraine Update: US, UK ban Russia Oil Imports, Russia Responds Limiting Exports, Rising Supply Chain Threats

As the Russian invasion in Ukraine enters into its third week, we analyze the latest cybersecurity events surrounding the invasion and we focus on the implications that the conflict has for the global economy and supply chains.


Our assessment regarding the threat level for organizations remains the same, as we continue to see highly motivated hacktivist groups and APTs engage in increased cyberactivity. Threat level for Critical infrastructure in EU (specifically Germany): MEDIUM – HIGH. Threat level to the global supply chain (potential of disruption): MEDIUM.
