targeted victims in the United States and
in more than 135 other countries.
DOJ indicates Akulov, Gavrilov and
Tyukov are charged with conspiracy to
cause damage to the property of an energy
facility and commit computer fraud and
abuse, which carries a maximum sentence
of five years in prison, and conspiracy to
commit wire fraud, which carries a maximum
sentence of 20 years in prison. Akulov
and Gavrilov also are charged with substantive
counts of wire fraud and computer
fraud related to unlawfully obtaining information
from computers and damaging
computers. These offenses carry maximum
sentences ranging from five to 20 years in
prison. Finally, Akulov and Gavrilov also
are charged with three counts of aggravated
identity theft, each of which carry a minimum
sentence of two years consecutive to
any other sentence imposed.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Scott Rask,
Christopher Oakley and Ryan Huschka
for the District of Kansas, and Counsel
for Cyber Investigations Ali Ahmad
and Trial Attorney Christine Bonomo
of the National Security Division's
Counterintelligence and Export Control
Section are prosecuting this case, the
department notes. The FBI's Portland
and Richmond field offices conducted
the investigation, with the assistance
of the FBI's Cyber Division.
The department says numerous victims,
including Wolf Creek and its owners
Evergy and the Kansas Electric Power
Cooperative, have cooperated and provided
invaluable assistance in the investigation.
DOI concludes by noting that an indictment
is merely an allegation and all
defendants are presumed innocent until
proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt
in a court of law. A federal district court
judge will determine any sentence after
considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines
and other statutory factors.

2021 Data Breaches Show Ransomware's Evolution
WASHINGTON-Ransomware remains
one of the most common and impactful
types of data security incidents, BakerHostetler
finds in its eighth annual Data
Security Incident Response Report.
Ransomware accounted for 37% of
the more than 1,270 data security incidents
the firm's digital assets and data management
practice group helped clients
manage in 2021, BakerHostetler says.
Noting that investments in business
continuity are making companies more
resilient to ransomware and therefore less
likely to pay, BakerHostetler says the average
ransom paid fell to $511,957, a
30% reduction from the average in 2020.
Organizations also took longer to pay,
with a median of eight days compared
with five days in 2020.
To pressure organizations to pay ransoms,
BakerHostetler warns that groups
are going beyond encrypting data to cause
outages. For example, they may threaten
to publish stolen data or disrupt operations
through other means, such as distributed
denial of service attacks. In 2021 ransomware
matters, threat actors claimed to
have stolen data 82% of the time, a 12%
increase over 2020.
" A key difference between organizations
that had meaningful ransomware
events and those that did not was the use
of a fully deployed endpoint detection
and response (EDR) tool that was set in
enforcement mode with the antiuninstall
feature enabled, " says Craig Hoffman,
co-leader of BakerHostetler's national
digital risk advisory and cybersecurity
team. " In addition to an EDR tool and a
robust business continuity plan, effective
measures to combat this risk include multifactor
authentication, effective patch
management and addressing remote desktop
protocol.
