Conservative Think Tank Heritage Foundation Hit by Cyberattack! Are You Prepared?

The Heritage Foundation, a prominent conservative think tank in Washington D.C., just revealed they were targeted by a cyberattack earlier this week. While the extent of the attack and stolen data remain unclear, this news serves as a stark reminder that no organization is immune to cyber threats.

What We Know So Far:

  • Heritage Foundation shut down its network to contain the attack and prevent further damage.
  • The target likely came from nation-state hackers, according to a Heritage official, although no evidence was provided.
  • This isn’t the first time Heritage has been targeted – they experienced a cyberattack in 2015 where donor data and emails were stolen.

Why This Matters

Think tanks, due to their connections to government and policy making, are frequent targets for cyber espionage. This attack highlights the ever-present threat of cyberattacks for organizations of all sizes, and the importance of robust cybersecurity measures.
