Russia-Ukraine and the Impact on Cybersecurity - New Cyber24 Podcast


In the early days of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, speculation about upcoming cyber-attacks was rampant. Russian-based hacking organizations were already notorious, and many assumed that Russia’s physical attack in Eastern Europe would correspond with increased cyber-attacks throughout the West. Fortunately, though perhaps surprisingly, many malware-based attacks actually decreased when the war began; unfortunately, they’ve recently started to become a problem again.

Former NSA computer ops expert Jon Murchison joins in this episode of Cyber24 to discuss these surprising findings and more. He is the founder of Blackpoint Cyber, which specializes in the real-time monitoring and repulsing of cyber-attacks. As the CEO of Blackpoint, Murchison is often faced with the common struggle of hiring talent in the competitive cybersecurity industry. Tune in to hear some of his tips for hiring talent and building a winning mindset throughout a cybersecurity company, as well as the “five pillars” of good cybersecurity that Blackpoint adheres to.
