Roe decision sparks urgent call for privacy legislation. The State Department moves to overhaul its approach to cyber. And a mysterious hacktivist group claims attacks on Iranian steel facilities. This is CyberScoop for June 27.

The end of abortion rights brings privacy concerns

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, ending nearly 50 years of the nation’s highest court affirming the constitutional right to abortion. Democratic lawmakers and some privacy advocates reacted by urging Congress to pass privacy legislation that could reduce some of the digital risks abortion-seekers face. The reversal of Roe could lead to law enforcement officials going after data such as search histories and location information to criminalize abortion. So far, tech companies aren't saying much about what they're going to do to protect user data, including if they're going to stop collecting it. Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon have all been silent on the matter. Tonya Riley reports.

State Department to overhaul cybersecurity systems

The State Department Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR) issued a cybersecurity strategy Monday that the agency says will tackle what the bureau’s chief referred to as a “technical debt." Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Intelligence and Research Brett Holmgren said his goal is to make the bureau far more aggressive at finding and fixing vulnerabilities. The strategy document says it is imperative that INR “strengthen the security of the department’s top secret computing environment and improve how we manage cyber risk.” Key elements of the strategy involve migrating the bureau's top-secret data to the cloud and better deploying “real-time threat based security functions.”   Suzanne Smalley has the details.


Iranian steel facilities suffer apparent cyberattacks

A trio of Iranian steel facilities suffered apparent cyberattacks Monday, according to multiple local news reports. A mysterious hacktivist group called Gonjeshke Darande announced the attack on its Telegram channel, posting screenshots of supposed internal control dashboards and a video claiming to show machinery inside a steel facility malfunctioning and causing a fire. The group had previously attacked Iranian targets, including deploying wiper malware against the country's train system in June 2021 and a subsequent attack on Iranian gas pumps in October 2021. AJ Vicens has more on the developing story.
