Arrow DHS warns of Iranian Cybe-Attacks in wake of Soleimami strike

DHS warns of Iranian Cyber-Attacks in wake of Soleimami strike
By: Carl Munoz - Janes Defense Weekly - 01-03-20

The US Department of Homeland Security's (DHS's) top cybersecurity official sounded the alarm on a possible uptick in Iranian cyberattacks against government and civilian networks, in the wake of recent US airstrikes that killed General Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force.

Chris Krebs, head of the department's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), urged vigilance among US cybersecurity officials over new network attacks and security breaches by Iranian forces in a 2 January social media post on Twitter. "Given recent developments, re-upping our statement from the summer," Krebs wrote in the 2 January Twitter post. "Bottom line: time to brush up on Iranian TTPs [tactics, techniques, and procedures] and pay close attention to your critical systems, particularly [Industrial Control Systems].

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
