Your Mission is Our Mission – Shields Up

This past week has seen the most significant military action on the European continent in 80 years.  We are witnesses to change in the world that will significantly change our lives, our countries and our businesses. 

There have been significant kinetic and cyberattacks over the past weeks -including disk-wiper attacks and new malware- integrated with full-scale invasion of Ukraine.   There is an escalation of cyberattacks on not only military systems and networks, but also critical infrastructure systems/targets around the world.   

These attacks can be utilized to distract military decision making and the resources of US and Allied forces.. or as Chris Kreb’s refers to it:

It's not just about intelligence operations, but using technology to disrupt the decision calculus of us, of our allies, is absolutely within the strategy of our adversaries."

— Former U.S. CISA Director Christopher Krebs


Worldwide government, defense industries, and critical infrastructure organizations are seeking to shore up cybersecurity, and the answer may be an increase in existing capability, or take the form of new ideas and capabilities.  At minimum, we will discover more about combined arms, cyber, and kinetic capabilities in practice. 

Organizations and their missions will require assistance to uncover new solutions to a complex and evolving threat landscape, and Forcepoint is here to provide that assistance. We are standing by to support and help in any capacity you require.  Your mission is our mission.

Please reach out to your Forcepoint team member, or visit our government and critical infrastructure solution spaces to explore our high assurance cybersecurity capabilities.  Our team is here to support.

Shields Up.
