Yesterday South Korea was the victim of a massive cyber attack, shutting down banks and media outlets and bringing segments of its economy to a standstill. South Korea believes that it was North Korea behind the attack. Whether true or not, it is another painful reminder of how a cyber attack can immediately impact a nation. The days of “duck and cover” have been replaced by warriors at terminals attempting to provide a line of defense. However, one must wonder if this provides any more safety than “duck and cover” did growing up! Cyber terrorism/war is a real and immediate threat at many levels. This latest attack further highlights the growing use of cyber warfare. Is your company prepared for a cyber attack, or are you ducking and covering?
