Stolen Credentials Led to Data Theft at United Nations.v1

The UN has been hit by a major cyberattack

September 10, 2021 – The United Nations has admitted that malicious figures were able to breach its network earlier this year and steal data which could now be used for facilitating future attacks on the organization as well as on other agencies. 

Baber Amin, our COO (Chief Operating Officer), commented to Techradar stating that the UN breach is a good example of securing access using passwords alone.

“The best thing is to eliminate the use of passwords from as many systems as possible. If that is not possible, multi-factor authentication (MFA) should be implemented for all access,” suggests Amin.
