Over the past year, cyberattacks on the supply chain and critical infrastructure have not only shown adversaries are expanding their capability and sophistication but also revealed an increasing level of overt arrogance that has not been seen before.
The supply chain attacks on SolarWinds and Kaseya, attributed by many—including U.S. intelligence—to Russian intelligence services, were incredibly sophisticated, complex and successful. Large scale ransomware attacks like those targeting Colonial Pipeline and JBS Foods used to happen once or twice a year. Now they occur much more regularly. Adversaries are not hiding what they are doing—they’re being outright brazen about it.
