Potential Iranian Cyber Attack: Where Do I Begin?

January 8, 2020 CynergisTek, Inc.

The U.S. strike that killed Qassem Soleimani could have a dramatic impact on how we prepare for and respond to cyberattacks in the United States as Iranian cyber actors have significant experience in destructive “wiper” attacks that have historically not targeted the U.S. mainland.

The Iranian government has long been an “enemy” of the West, and the United States in particular, but today stories run the gamut from nuclear capability, to human rights, to terrorism, to cyber warfare, and revenge. Iran’s cyber sophistication has grown rapidly since the dawn of Stuxnet and they have used hard dollars combined with national pride to help build a cyber army. Few doubt Iran’s commitment as a government and nation-state to funding and recruiting cyber warriors to infiltrate and damage their enemies. They have long desired power on the political stage, in particular in the fight for nuclear power autonomy.
This in-depth resource provides insight into how you can be prepared for these potential cyber-attacks.
