‘Behind the cyber attacks stand modern systems and the huge amounts of money – with that scale of the threat, Poland has no possibilities to deal with them.’

The risk of attack on critical infrastructure, including power stations and energy networks has so far been underestimated. This was shown in the lack of cooperation of the particular institutions, the low awareness of the threat and small funds allocated for security program. Poland, as well as most European countries, do not protect their critical infrastructure sufficiently – concluded panelists participating in “Cybersecurity of the energy sector” conference organized by the Casimir Pulaski Foundation. For the last two decades, operators of critical infrastructure in Poland have underestimated cyber threats. Nobody would have imagined that cyber attack could neutralize all security levels applicated in power stations or transmission lines. In recent […]

Sanctions imposed by the European Union and the United States as well as the disadvantageous economic situation have not prevented Russia from implementing priority projects of the State Armaments Program for 2011-2020 (rus.
