1216

Joe Biden, the President of United States, has issued a warning to all CEOs and technology heads of companies that a Russian cyber attack is inevitable and all leaders should follow a patriotic obligation to bolster their cybersecurity measures, before it is too late.

Since, United States has been providing arms, ammunition and required financial relief to Ukraine, it is one of the top targets for the Russian President to take down.

Without launching a physical fight, Putin is intending to down the critical infrastructure of United States in retaliation of the sanctions imposed on its country by America and allies.

So, the only way left is to use sophistication and launch cyber attacks through specially trained cyber forces. Their aim will be to bring down the network related to banks and electric grid along with water utilities, thus causing inconvenience and, sometimes, of innocent populace.

On one hand, Kremlin is looking to take control of Kyiv and is doing everything to achieve its goal, albeit with the fact that it has lost about 10,000 soldiers in the war.

Parallelly, Moscow is also planning to teach a lesson to its adversaries that pressed sanctions against it.

Note- From the start of Russian invasion in Ukraine, the cyber forces of UK and US aka NCSC and CISA have been constantly issuing a cyber threat warning to all countries that are to support Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The newest alert has been issued by the President of United States, Mr. Biden, who just acted on the inputs from the intelligence.
