The February 2023 report by Thales's Cyber Threat Intelligence unit reviews one year of cyber-attacks across Europe.
The third quarter of 2022 marked a turning point in cyber-attacks related to the conflict in Ukraine, with a clear transition from a cyber-war focused on Ukraine and Russia to a high-intensity hybrid cyber-war across Europe. The cyber-war is targeting Poland and the Baltic and Nordic countries in particular, with an increasing focus on critical national infrastructure in sectors including aviation, energy, healthcare, banking and public services.
From targeted destruction campaigns to guerrilla cyber-harassment, pro-Russian hacktivists are using DDoS1 attacks to make servers temporarily inaccessible and disrupt services.

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Out of more than 500 global solutions, Graforce was recognized at the Petronas Race2Decarbonise with its methane electrolysis technology (plasmalysis) in the category “Gas Flaring Reduction or Elimination.” The competition is aimed at accelerating the development of low-carbon solutions and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Gas flaring results in more than 400 million tons of CO2 emissions every year. Thousands of gas flares at production sites around the globe burn approximately 150 billion cubic meters of natural gas each year, thus wasting a valuable resource. Plasmalysis, on the other hand, converts methane and other hydrocarbons previously vented or flared into clean hydrogen and solid carbon, thus generating climate-neutral energy.

Using hydrogen, a clean, sustainable energy source, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thereby mitigate climate change. Graforce is the world’s first company to offer a market-ready technolo ... Read more »
