The United States is once again being brazenly hit with successful cyberattacks from Russia and China, a wake-up call for the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) and other federal agencies to make sure that technology providers adhere to the highest standards to minimize the impact of such attacks.
Especially disturbing is Microsoft’s disclosure on January 19 that senior executives’ e-mail accounts had been hacked by Nobelium, a cybercriminal group affiliated with Russia’s government. Nobelium engineered the 2015 attack on the Democratic National Committee and the 2020 SolarWinds attack, which led to data breaches in the federal government and thousands of organizations.
Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in the Op-Ed here in RealClearEnergy.
