There have been warnings of increased cyber threats globally arising from the recent cyber-attacks on Ukraine and the developments in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
While there have not been reports of any threats to Singapore organisations in relation to the events in and around Ukraine, organisations are advised to take active steps to strengthen your cybersecurity posture, heighten vigilance, and bolster your online defences to protect your organisation against possible cyber-attacks, such as web defacement, distributed denial of service (DDoS), and ransomware.
