What Are Geo-Poli-Cyber™ (GPCyber™) Risks & Threats?
MLi Group created the terms Poli-Cyber™ and Geo-Poli-Cyber™ (GPCyber™) in 2012 and 2013 because of seismic events that had started happening in prior years. These events and their trends led MLi Group chairman Khaled Fattal to believe that they will challenge and force critical need to change security strategies, models, solutions forever. Fattal further infused his vision and solutions with the philosophy that if you cannot identify and name the threat, you will fail to mitigate that threat.
Geo-Poli-Cyber™ attacks are political, ideological, terrorist, extremist, ‘religious’ and/or geo-politically motivated attacks which cyber security strategies and solutions continue failing to mitigate, defend and protect national and corporate entities, on unprecedented scales, and with devastating consequences.
More Sinister and Destructive Than Financial Motivations
Geo-Poli-Cyber™ attacks are significantly different from financially motivated cyber-attacks in damage, scale, magnitude as well as in risk mitigation strategies and solutions.
GPCyber™ attacks can have dire direct & indirect impact on the nation state, organizations and their stakeholders. This is especially so in their impact on citizens’ lives and livelihoods.
GPCyber™ Motivations & Mitigation Strategies & Solutions
MLi Group chairman Mr. Khaled Fattal has been involved in the global infrastructure of the Internet and its security and stability since the mid to late 90’s.
in 2012, led by chairman Fattal, MLi Group embarked on creating the ‘Survivability Strategies™, Solutions and Protocols to mitigate Geo-Poli-Cyber™ risks that go beyond followed strategies and solutions. MLi has continued evolving and improving them ever since.
Vindicated Vision & Predictions
Fattal accurately predicted that cyber security solutions designed to mitigate financially motivated attacks will fail to mitigate GPCyber™ motivated ones.
Today, national and corporate resiliency, continuity, and cyber security strategies and solutions keep failing on unprecedented scales in defending and mitigating alike – yet they continue being followed and relied upon like gospel to the detriment of all stakeholders.
Fattal was also vindicated with his 2012 visionary prediction that GPCyber™ attacks will lead to unprecedented and unmitigated events that have become routine occurrences and a fact of today’s daily life.
Ransomware often a Decoy to More Sinister GPCyber™ Motivations
MLi Group has documented specific incidents where financially motivated ransomware cyber attacks were used as a decoy for more sinister GPCyber™ motivations. Ask us to address this factor when you submit your request for a confidential private briefing.
Some of the Key perpetrators of devastating, debilitating and destructive GPCyber™ motivated attacks are the new breed of extremist and terrorist groups, lone wolves, and rogue states amongst many others.
Some GPCyber™ perpetrators are often directed or sponsored by national security agencies of not only enemies but ‘presumed allies’ who can often cause more damage than adversaries or enemies.
GPCyber™ Perpetrators’ Goals
GPCyber™ attacks are often aimed at coercing, altering or damaging the economic fate and/or the political directions of nations and organizations.
GPCyber™ Threat Vector
Today, the world is heavily threatened by this new “GPCyber™ Threat Vector” and its risks are escalating exponentially.
National Sovereignty & Corporate Security at New Risk
Organizations and governments all over the world that allow themselves to remain seriously unmitigated against GPCyber™ attacks are increasing the likelihood of potential catastrophic events being perpetrated on them. Such compromises will not only seriously damage their corporate and national security, but also ‘Effective, Competitive Sovereign and Corporate Survivability.”
