(Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said on Friday the Cyber Safety Review Board will investigate recent cyber-attacks linked to Lapsus$.

"Lapsus$ has reportedly employed techniques to bypass a range of commonly-used security controls and has successfully infiltrated a number of companies across industries and geographic areas," the DHS said.

The hacker group, known to have several members globally, was most recently involved in a digital intrusion at ride-hailing company Uber Inc.

It is also known to have infiltrated systems at Nvidia Corp, Microsoft Corp and Okta Inc, an authentication service.

The Cyber Safety Review Board is a public-private body that takes up fact-finding initiatives. It serves to review major cyber events and make concrete recommendations.
