Is just wonderful the number of reports of cyber attacks and hackers breaking into huge firms. It would seem every single working day we see that there have been cyber attacks on our authorities, army, and our Fortune 500 firms. Now not only the government, but also the citizens are calling for far more cyber protection, and better and more powerful pc techniques. Naturally, this absolutely is appreciated by the lobbyists in the pc sector, and the cyber stability application sector.
Probably you are as troubled as I am about the potential of pc security? I not too long ago, mentioned an report in Homeland Safety Information, one particular of several in fact, but it produced me cease and consider. The report was printed on July fifteen, 2011 in the Cyber Business Segment titled “Modern deluge of cyber attacks outcomes in file paying,” and it mentioned
“The deluge of higher profile cyber attacks on main businesses and federal government entities like the U.S. Senate, the CIA, and Sony has pushed a sharp improve in need for cyber stability specialists in the first six months of this year alone, cyber assaults and info breaches have price U.S. businesses approximately $96 billion, practically the total for 2010 analysts task 2011 to be the busiest calendar year nevertheless with an approximated $seventy five.6 billion in cyber safety spending, surpassing last year’s report $63 billion.”
Now then, how appear the far more we devote, the a lot more attacks we get, and the a lot more protection methods we place up in defense, the more chinks in the armor the cyber hackers discover? Cyphere seems to me that the hackers are just as smart as people designing the programs, and probably, even amongst the identical group of buddies as people developing the firewalls. It appears as well poor that we have a game of immediate escalation, and possibly we want a new method.
Possibly what we require to do is change the recreation totally, go to a entirely diverse system, and change every thing all around so that we prevent the kinds of cyber attacks we have been having. Every single time we spend far more income, there looks to be far more media about the cyber attacks, and it appears to be generating a feeding frenzy in Washington DC, as they invest our taxpayer’s money for a lot more robust laptop methods. 1 may well also inquire why is the govt amassing so significantly info, what do they need it for – and is it truly helping their efficiency?
Think about this if you will, government is currently inefficient by its extremely nature, bureaucracies often are. Just because the paperwork is a lot more successful shifting info all around, isn’t going to mean what it is undertaking is correct, or an effective process in the 1st location. The potential to do more making use of personal computers is irrelevant if what you are carrying out is just shuffling paperwork – if you shuffle the paperwork more rapidly or much more of it, are you really succeeding at something?
Now then, keep that imagined for a second, and let’s go again to the other subject, that is to say the challenge of our recent Internet, and personal computer methods. No a single tries to hack into mainframes anymore appropriate, everyone is making an attempt to hack into the World wide web now. What if we altered our program totally, generating a total different technique, something properly outside of what we are at present utilizing now. In that situation our personal computer systems would not be open up to cyber attack. And it might give us time to breathe and beef up our systems until the cyber attackers determine out the new system.
