US on high alert for Iran-backed cyber attacks

  • The US public and private sector are on high alert for cyber retaliation from Iranian state-backed hackers following the killing of the country’s top military commander Qassem Soleimani in a US drone strike last week.
  • Government officials and cyber security experts are anticipating this may come in the form of cyber attacks focused on disrupting anything from corporate and municipal IT systems to transit, logistics, healthcare or US military facilities.
