The Institute for Statecraft: Charity established to counter Russian disinformation.
Risk to Small Business: 2 = Severe: The UK charity that received government funding to combat Russian disinformation was hacked and is now being investigated by the National Crime Agency (NCA). All website content was temporarily removed from the site, but the organization plans to relaunch shortly.
Individual Risk: 2.714 = Moderate: Although there is no evidence that the personal information of individuals was directly impacted, this type of hack has many implications for the public. Citizens must avoid falling prey to disinformation by validating sources and staying cyber-vigilant.
Customers Impacted: N/A
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: Organizations that operate in the nonprofit sector are not exempt from data breaches. As hackers begin to turn their sights toward information that is the most valuable and least protected, IT security teams must understand the gravity of leaving data exposed.
