rise in attacks on defense installations and infrastructure in H1 2021
attacks involve complex variants of new malware
Unsecure data traffic, endpoints, and other network assets
Leakage of national secrets and confidential data.
Hackers taking charge of hardware and manipulating data.
Targeted geopolitical attacks.
Defense installations have been targeted by a variety of actors including geopolitical rivals, hackers, malware developers, and actors with malicious intent. With large-scale automation and remote connectivity becoming the norm, defense equipment and installations are now exposed to threat actors like never before.
Even air-gapped equipment and those that do not connect directly to the internet are vulnerable. This includes radar stations, communication equipment, field-level situation awareness enablers, Satcom, command, and control centers, ships, data centers, remote field monitoring equipment, and connected frontline artillery and other connected and automated weapons.
With increased automation in the defense sector across the ecosystem, gaps have been created for malicious actors to exploit. This sector also attracts the most potent cyber weapons including multi-phased malware loaders, stealth payload delivery engines, capsulated malware, and reconnaissance malware that evades various forms of detection.
