The SolarWinds cyberattack, affecting U.S. government agencies and technology companies, is one of the largest cybersecurity breaches in recent history. SolarWinds produces network management software that is widely adopted, and hackers are believed to have exploited weaknesses in SolarWinds’ system-to-system (supply chain) updates that commonly exist between many internet-connected ecosystems. This is sometimes described as a software supply chain attack. What has been the impact of the attack, and what can be done to prevent or mitigate such attacks, or at least detect them earlier? During this Commonwealth Cyber Initiative seminar, you'll learn about the hack's impact and research aimed at preventing and mitigating similar cyber-attacks.
