Solarwinds Cyber Incident

December 23, 2020

Last week, the FBI, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence jointly announced an ongoing cybersecurity incident involving federal networks as well as numerous public and private organizations around the world. The attackers gained access through the SolarWinds Orion IT software platform, a platform used by many organizations to monitor and manage the performance of their computer networks. The incident has been reported by numerous media outlets, and SolarWinds has published its own security advisory and FAQ, inclusive of mitigation steps.

We have issued a client advisory, which has been shared with regional MarComm leaders for deployment to all clients as soon as possible.
