Perspective for action

The WhisperGate-attack or the other executed attacks in Ukraine have not led to so-called ‘spill-over effects’ in the Netherlands. However, it is recommended to act in accordance with the NCSC’s basis measures on cybersecurity, and to take note of the AIVD and MIVD publication, “Cyberattacks by statal actors, seven moments to stop an attack’’ [available in Dutch only]. In particular, the basic measure of ‘segmented networking’ can help to prevent that an attack on a coupled network could affect your organization.

The NCSC keeps monitoring the developments closely and shares relevant information wherever possible.
