A cybersecurity expert has warned of the latest trends in cyber-attacks, with a particular focus on critical infrastructure. Broadly defined as systems that “uphold the needs of society”, these can relate to energy, telecoms, pharmaceuticals and finances. Dave Weinstein, CSO at Claroty, says: “Techniques like password spraying and spearphishing are hardly new to the cyber threat landscape, but their use against critical infrastructure organisations, particularly in North America, suggest a concerted effort among select groups to gain access to these hardened targets.”
