This is an expected attack angle in a high risk/gain sector.
A competent ITSEC policy and implementation would have mitigated most of it.
It would not have been possible in most high sec networks i’ve been involved with.
USB storage should have been disabled everywhere, no unknown MAC network traffic, endpoint tracking, failed auth logging and alarms etc.
