CISA Alert AA22-083A – TTPs of Indicted State-Sponsored Russian Cyber Actors Targeting the Energy Sector.
This joint Cybersecurity Advisory provides information on multiple intrusion campaigns conducted by state-sponsored Russian cyber actors from 2011 to 2018 that targeted US and international Energy Sector organizations. CISA, the FBI, and DOE assess that state-sponsored Russian cyber operations continue to pose a threat to Energy Sector networks and are sharing this information in order to highlight TTPs used by adversaries to target Energy Sector organizations. They urge the Energy Sector and other critical infrastructure organizations to apply the recommendations listed in the Mitigations Section and Appendix Alpha of the alert documentation to reduce the risk of compromise.
All organizations should report incidents and anomalous activity to CISA’s 24/7 Operations Center at email@example.com or (888) 282-0870 and to the FBI via your local FBI field office or the FBI’s 24/7 CyWatch at (855) 292-3937 or CyWatch@fbi.gov.
