Intelix Security Briefing: 26/01/20
Target Area: USA, China, UK, Russia, UAE, Middle East, Asia.

  1. Russia: Political changes are afoot in Russia, with a new choice for Prime Minister being nominated by Vladimir Putin, the President. There are also efforts underway to amend its constitution to create an avenue for Putin to retain some power after he leaves the role of the President due to constitutional limits. Russia remains a stable & leading nation in many ways.

  2. USA: The House has delivered impeachment charges to the Senate. While this will no doubt generate a lot of political activity, as American elected officials tend to take their responsibilities seriously, we do not expect that this will imperil the country’s governance in any way. The USA has very established democratic institutions & is quite matured. It has also shown itself capable of meeting its security responsibilities both at home & abroad, despite the impeachment distractions.

  3. UK/Global: Travelex which provides financial services to travelers globally has been hacked. The hackers are demanding for ransom payments. Travelex is announcing that it has already taken significant remedial action & its services are gradually coming back up. If you’re a Travelex customer & have been impacted by this hack, please take precautionary action immediately. Read more: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/business-51017852
