Today’s language applied to the inevitability of cyber-attacks and cyber-warfare has blown right past language used to describe computer – IT system security breaches of the 1990’s.
Cyber warfare – security language changing our perspective.
Cyber attacks designed to simultaneously take down and/or substantially disrupt multiple pillars of a targeted countries’ infrastructure, ala MAD – ‘mutually assured disruption’!
It’s impractical for companies to continue to assume the time and costs of installing ever bigger, one size fits all, snap-shot-in-time firewalls and data/information security – protection products to thwart the growing number of sophisticated and global economic and competitive advantage adversaries and legacy free players, aka hackers when intangible assets remain at risk.
Computer/IT breaches breeding grounds for reputation risks, so the value of data/information assets should drive computer/IT security.
