Enhancing Situational Awareness on Emerging Cyber Threats

The Bangladesh Government’s Computer Incident Response Team (BGD e-GOV CIRT) carries out its primary mission of safeguarding the nation’s cyberspace through proactive management of computer security incidents and related activities. This mission involves close collaboration with international organizations and entities to effectively mitigate risks. Our goal is to maintain a continuous state of vigilance and preparedness, both in anticipation of potential incidents and in response to them, thus ensuring the security of institutions throughout the country.

We’ve noticed that various global critical information infrastructures such as healthcare, banking, government institutions, etc. have been targeted by various hacktivist groups. These groups remain active and persist in carrying out hacking activities. As a result, it’s crucial for us to remain highly vigilant about the state of our own infrastructure and rigorously follow best practices.
