Breach Detection BREACH DETECTION

A cyber attack left the city of Dallas with a serious headache after setting off all emergency sirens in the city for around 90 minutes last Friday night.

Reports claim that the attack triggered 156 emergency sirens around the city that are generally used for weather-related incidents like tornadoes. The alarms struck around 11:42 pm CDT and rang till 1:17 am on Saturday morning until engineers manually shut down the sirens’ radio system and repeaters.

This attack is among the largest to impact emergency sirens, an attack that many believe could have been avoided without failed safety mechanisms in place.

Itay Galick, CEO of Votiro claims, “As it took a lot of time to turn off the alert, I would believe that somebody likely found a way to signal a fake tornado. I believe that security and encryption should be applied in all data channels, whether it is through the internal network, and the less addressed, emergency network for the sirens.”

Protecting your IT Infrastructure, such as email, is essential to help combat remote attacks on systems, specifically against zero-day exploits. With NNT’s sophisticated Breach Detection solution you can do just that- defend against zero-day threats, Trojans, APTs, and more.

Imagine if this was an attack on national infrastructure- the damage could have been potentially catastrophic. It’s important that organizations get their IT defenses up because before they know it, they could be the next victim.
