White House Plans to Attribute the Microsoft Exchange Hack Soon
(Nextgov) The White House will soon officially assign responsibility for an extensive attack on Microsoft Exchange servers and decide on next steps, according to a top cybersecurity official.
“I think you saw the National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan say that we will attribute that activity,” Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technology Anne Neuberger said Tuesday. More on the decision and follow-on action will be announced “in the coming weeks.”
Neuberger was speaking with Dmitri Alperovitch, executive chairman of Silverado Policy Accelerator and co-founder and former chief technology officer of the security firm CrowdStrike.
