But even without the news on TV all of you should be protecting your business and its critical data from any cyber attack no matter the location of the cyber criminals.
As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, the risk of a cyber-attack hangs over ordinary businesses here.
It’s thought Russia could launch online attacks in response to sanctions.
