In June of 2017, Russia launched the NotPetya cyber-attack against Ukraine, causing indiscriminate impacts to a wide range of organizations, from banks and government ministries to electricity companies. The majority of attacks affected organizations in Ukraine, but they were not so geographically confined. Damaging impacts were reported in Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Australia, and elsewhere. One of the victims was the Heritage Valley Health System in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Earlier this year, Russia’s cyber-attack against satellite company Viasat disrupted critical infrastructure well beyond Ukraine’s borders.
