WASHINGTON – Today, global tech trade association ITI issued the following statement from its President and CEO Jason Oxman on the warning to U.S. businesses regarding the threat of Russia-backed cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure:
“Today’s warning by the Biden Administration underscores the very real nature of the evolving cyber threats facing all businesses and individuals, but especially U.S. critical infrastructure owners and operators. In an intensifying geopolitical environment, businesses cannot risk being caught off-guard or underprepared. Cybersecurity continues to be a top priority for the tech industry, and we take this notice seriously. We will continue to work with the administration, state and local governments, and partners in the business community to help stay ahead of this rapidly changing cyber situation.”
The tech industry stands in strong support of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people as they continue their fight against the Russian invasion. Among other key functions, technology enables Ukrainians to communicate with one another and supports the delivery of critical lifelines like food and health care.
