AppSwarm, Corp. (OTC: SWRM), a software development company and aggregator of mobile applications, announces a sales initiative for data and cyber security solutions geared specifically for the energy and aerospace industries in Oklahoma, and the Midwest region.
AppSwarm has launched a sales initiative focused on small to mid-sized energy companies in Oklahoma for data and cyber security consulting, and threat detection software.
In late March 2022, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Energy (DOE) published a joint Cybersecurity Advisory with information on multiple intrusion campaigns targeting U.S. and international energy sector conducted by indicted Russian state-sponsored cyber actors from 2011 to 2018.
The White House also issued its starkest warning that Russia may be planning cyberattacks against critical-sector U.S. companies including energy, aerospace, and financial industries.
Although not highlighting any specific threat, the aim was to put the U.S. Energy industry on full alert for potential foreign and malicious cyber-attacks in the coming months.
