A Perfect Partnership for the Modern World

Global trade disputes, rising nationalism, and major health and environmental issues are forcing businesses to rethink the way they operate. 2020 has seen record levels of unemployment and business closures around the globe. The world is changing quicker than ever, and the threats faced by companies are multiplying.

Technology has become the backbone of the modern world. Businesses need to understand what the issues are and how their operations can be impacted, to appropriately adapt their approach. Futureproofing in this way minimises the impact of problems arising across the geopolitical and cyber threat landscapes.

Advanced technologies shine a light on the threats the business world is facing and provide intelligence vendors with a wealth of valuable predictive data. This information, however, is worthless without context which transforms it into actionable intelligence. To get this context from an in-depth understanding of the subjects at hand, most organisations require assistance from experts.

Cyjax and A2 Global Risk have formed a partnership that combines their respective expertise in geopolitical and cyber threat intelligence, both on a local and global level, to help keep your business safe.

In a world of bewildering informational complexity, an understanding of the ways that people, power, and geography influence future trends is essential to management success. Careful application of the precepts of geopolitical analysis not only provides insight into current events but can also lead to accurate predictions of future events.

A2 analysts work to understand how security risks manifest themselves at the intersection of environmental, sociological, and economic trends that are often missed by conventional reporting.

The addition of cyber risk analysis into the realm of geopolitical analysis is a natural evolution of Risk Management. Several corporations have embraced a “converged” security model; joining their cyber and corporate security personnel into the same functional reporting group to increase efficiency. Understanding all operational risks within an environment is essential in enabling a business to operate within them.

The collaboration between A2 Global Risk and Cyjax connects these two elements and provides a comprehensive overview of the risks in a specific environment.

Deep-dive reporting on key threats

Financial spear-phishing campaigns pushing RATs

On 12 May, the FBI Cyber Division issued a TLP:WHITE Private Industry Notification. This concerned a spear-phishing campaign distributing messages that masqueraded as financial institutions to push fake Windows apps containing remote access Trojans (RATs). The most recent attack impersonated a US-based financial institution to target an American renewable energy company. The spear-phishing email referenced a fictitious loan and instructed the target organisation’s employees to download a Windows application so as to complete the loan process to receive $62 million.
