Cybersecurity agencies alerts about the rising cyberattacks

The members of the Five Eyes (FVEY) intelligence alliance have alerted the managed service providers (MSPs) and their customers that they’re targeted by cyber attacks. American cybersecurity and intelligence agencies issued a joint advisory on how to detect, respond to, and lower the cyberattacks planned by Russian state-sponsored actors on Tuesday.

Consequently, the ongoing tensions between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine have now given rise to cyberattacks. Hence, to strengthen cyber resilience, the agencies recommended using multi-factor authentication for all users.

The CISA, FBI and NSA have issued the tactics, techniques, and procedures adopted by the enemies. Additionally, many cybersecurity and law enforcement agencies like The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and National Security Agency (NSA) shared instructions for MSPs to secure networks. Also shared guidance to secure sensitive data from the rising cyber-attacks.

Last year, the UK government also announced some of the technics to defend against these cyber attacks. Also, they issued some of the ways to strengthen the cybersecurity defences of IT Managed Service Providers (MSPs) across the country.
