Ukraine Cyber Attack

Implications for US Stakeholders

Unclassified Threat Briefing Campaign


Overview and Purpose

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have been actively working with the government of Ukraine and other U.S. Federal Government entities to understand the December 23, 2015 attacks against Ukrainian power infrastructure. These events represent one of the first known physical impacts to critical infrastructure which resulted from cyber-attack. The attacks leveraged commonly available tools and tactics against the control systems which could be used against infrastructure in every sector.


To increase awareness of the threat and provide additional context for the events in late 2015, ICS-CERT and the FBI will conduct unclassified in-person briefings as well as online webinars for asset owners and supporting personnel. The briefing sessions will provide details about the events surrounding the attack, techniques used by the threat actors, and strategies for mitigating risks and improving the cyber defensive posture of an organization.
