Ruchika Mishra commented on the news below that Chinese government hackers had breached a government contractor to steal sensitive information from the US Navy.
Ruchika Mishra, Director of Product Marketing at Balbix:
“Even an entity as highly regulated and classified as the federal government is not immune from the danger posed by third-party vulnerabilities. It is unfortunately common in the enterprise for a third-parties to be the entry points for attackers, so it makes sense that similar patterns would hold true for nation-states looking to breach their adversaries’ cyber defenses. Any organization’s security personnel must be absolutely clear about the relative values of all its assets and, with that context, implement solutions that enable it to prioritize its defenses and proactively address vulnerabilities that would put them at risk before they become entry points for attackers.”
