Threat Intelligence and Critical Infrastructure

Critical infrastructure describes the physical and cyber systems and assets that are vital to physical and economic security of any nation. Incapacity or destruction of critical infrastructure could have a debilitating impact on the public health and safety of the country. Critical infrastructure provides the essential services that underpin society.

Ransomware, insider threats and shoddy access controls are at the heart of many threats against critical infrastructure. Since the onset of COVID-19, these facilities are also increasingly reliant on remote login tools, like Remote Desktop Protocols, that have been persistently targeted by ransomware actors and other hacking groups during the pandemic.

Like almost every industrial sector, these companies are vulnerable to spearphishing campaigns, vulnerabilities in old or unpatched legacy software and other common staples of the hacking world. And like those other sectors, critical infrastructure projects are quite often understaffed and under-resourced when it comes to cyber and physical security.

UMBRA can provide the knowledge to ensure critical infrastructure is protected from physical and cyber attacks and digital espionage.
