Cyber Security during Wartime
Welcome to Dev Shorts. Issue #23 talks about the wake of the nation-state’s cyber terrorism during the war, an OSS streaming platform, and a few upcoming developer conferences
Internet is more widely available now than in WWII. Everything that we do today is probably more available digitally than ever. In that course, nation-states have become vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Damage is inflicted on the enemy by blocking, hacking, and stealing digital entities’ data. For example, say the enemy state disrupted the essential supply chain management systems or crippled the networks of burgeoning startups.
The country could be brought to heels without firing a single bullet. Several media outlets predicted that there would be more cyberattacks than physical confrontation from the Russian state during Jan-Feb. But, unfortunately, things took a different route!
I believe most cloud co’s support and security teams were extremely busy & cautious during this time. If you still did not get what I’m talking about.

Like I always say, Security is a mindset and not a checkbox. It is essential to build secure systems, more now than ever.
