MTU Hack brings cyber security to the forefront...again!

Updated: Feb 10, 2023

This week we learned that MTU were the subject of a hack over the bank holiday

weekend. From what we can see in the mainstream news, the MTU team have been very open about this, reporting early and engaging with the NCSC and their cyber eco system rapidly to contain and manage the incident. This, in our opinion is commendable and not the norm - most hacks happen without it ever getting into the public domain. Good luck to the guys on the ground getting service restored!

By making the public domain, IT Management and Senior execs will be asking the question "Could this happen to us?". The answer is invariably yes - the real question is, have you got the controls and procedures in place to identify, block and/or respond in the right fashion should it happen to you.

If you don't know the answer, don't worry! With a quick review from a cyber expert you can understand where your risk lies and have a detailed plan of action to plug short and medium term gaps, while understanding what you may need to do in the longer term to react to the constantly changing threats.

Our assessment includes:

  • Gap Analysis vs Best practice - achieved through 3 x meetings/interviews of an hour long

  • Internal Vulnerability Scan - a host based scan of your network to understand the current vulnerabilities of your IT estate

  • External Threat intelligence - a review of your internet facing IT estate including your email security, web security and also a deeper dive into the dark web to identify any organisational information (such as shared credentials or mentioned on dark web forums - the indicators of an imminent attack).

Timeframe: 2 Weeks to a month depending on your availability.
