    Private: Amanda Doran

    On April 15, 2021, the U.S. White House released a statement in response to the March 2020 SolarWinds Orion data breach, in which the U.S. Government will implement several measures to improve the country’s protections against foreign hacker groups against the nation state.

    These new data security and data privacy measures include: “imposing new sanctions against Russian entities, attributing the SolarWinds compromise to the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), and issuing a pair of interagency reports that provide detailed technical information about the tools and methods Russian hackers used to exploit victim networks.”
