The Potential Risks Of Using Russian Tech

Share post:

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has advised organizations to look for alternatives to Russian-linked software or products.

This is because using these products as part of their network or supply chain makes them vulnerable to cyberattacks.

According to the NCSC, Russian law contains legal obligations on companies to assist the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB). The pressure to obey the obligation may intensify in a time of war.

Organizations providing services to Ukraine and organizations or individuals engaging in activities countering Russian actions could become targets.

NCSC advises critical infrastructure, the public sector, and high-profile organizations to evaluate the risks of using Russia-linked software and technology products.

“This conflict has changed the world order, and the increased risk and uncertainty aren’t going away any time soon. However, the best thing to do is to make plans, ensure your systems are as resilient as practical, and have good recovery plans,” Ian Levy, technical director at the NCSC said.
