The White House has urged companies to encrypt their data because Russia could plan a cyber attack on the United States in response to sanctions imposed on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.
The government said there is new information that Russia may be looking for methods for a potential cyber attack. To protect corporate data, the government warns companies to encrypt data so it cannot be used in the event of theft and to have online backups that attackers cannot access, the White House said in a statement.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
