A document from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency claims that “Russian cyber operations” pose a long-term threat to the United States.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the US Department of Homeland Security, and its subordinate Agency for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure (CISA) have again made allegations of Russian involvement in hacking US government networks. This is stated in the CISA document distributed on Monday.
According to the US special services, specialists in the cybersphere of the Russian special services “will continue to seek access to classified information of the US and foreign organizations” and use “various techniques of complexity.” According to the US intelligence community, the focus of such hackers is “government networks, expert centers, and information technology companies.”
The document claims that the “cyber operations of the Russian Federation” pose a long-term threat to the United States. US intelligence agencies note that hackers since 2018 have moved from the spread of malware to the tactics of hacking “cloud” resources, e-mail. “Operations in relation to “cloud” resources probably reduce the risk of detection through the use of hacked accounts and system failures,” the US authorities believe. Russia has repeatedly rejected US-attributed accusations of malicious activity in cyberspace. As stated earlier by the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev, the United States groundlessly accuses Russia of cyberattacks on its resources and does not want to cooperate in cyberspace.
