How to mitigate the expected consequences of this invasion

"Expect attackers to leverage the situation
as context for already-known attack techniques such as targeted phishing."

"Increase awareness and vigilance
to detect and prevent potential increased threats, but be mindful of the increased stress and pressure your organization is feeling. A human error due to these forces may have a greater impact on your organization than an actual cyber attack."

"Unknown consequences of a crisis like this
test the value of intentional business continuity management efforts as well as incident response plans."
