Exclusive seminar on the cyber attack against the Ukrainian government

BTH’s security researchers invites you to an exclusive and cutting edge seminar about the recent cyber attack on the Ukrainian government agencies.

This seminar will focus on the events of 13 January 2022, when several Ukrainian government networks were subject to a destructive cyber attack. With help of information from sources proximity to the investigation we will provide a hypothetic scenario of this attack known as #attack13. This was the largest such attack on Ukraine in four years and about 70 government websites were temporarily down. During the seminar the researchers will try to reconstruct the timeline of the attack and demonstrate those key points which can be useful to prevent such attacks in the future.

Date: 2 February
Time: 09:00-10:00
