After Theresa May, the former Prime Minister of Britain, it is the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) which is blaming Russia for staging cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and other sectors within past one year.
Ciaran Martin, the Executive Director of NCSC has accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of conducting espionage and attacks on developed nations of West. Mr. Martin added that some state-funded actors are acting as biggest threats to UK’s critical infrastructure. And if they are not tamed in time, this could spell a doom to the entire populace of Britain within no time.
Martin said that NCSC has enough evidence against Russia for attacking media, telecommunication and energy sectors in Britain since 2016. The Executive Director added that some rogue nations are supporting the espionage activities of the Russian Federation in order to create disturbance in the political landscape of west.
Addressing the attendees at the Times Tech Summit, Martin confirmed that no infrastructure in the world is immune to cyber attacks. He added that if nations start nurturing cyber armies to launch digital attacks on other nations, it could trigger World War 3 within no time.
The NCSC head did not bother to mince his harsh words against North Korea and its leader Kim Jong. He tagged the leader as a R*gue and added that the populace of North Korea should have to bear the consequences of the activities conducted by their leader.
Finally, Ciaran Martin said that NCSC is evolving into a brilliant platform for a secure digital future and he is proud to lead it.
