DHS to Review Lapsus$ Cyberattacks

The international group employs a number of new hacking techniques.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that officials will be reviewing and recommending strategies to counter recent attacks made by the international hacking group Lapsus$.

The group has targeted a number of large companies over the past year, including Uber, Samsung, and Microsoft, bypassing a number of security methods to obtain and release source code and sensitive user data. The DHS’s Cyber Safety Review Board will be conducting this investigation into Lapsus$ techniques.  

“With its review into Lapsus$, the Board will build on the lessons learned from its first review and share actionable recommendations to help the private and public sectors strengthen their cyber resilience,” said Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Mayorkas as he oversees efforts to prevent cyber attacks.
  • For members of the Cyber Safety Review Board as they look into the hacking group’s methods.
  • For public and private sector heads to seek effective cyber hacking prevention measures.
