Is just wonderful the amount of stories of cyber assaults and hackers breaking into big companies. It would seem every day we see that there have been cyber assaults on our authorities, armed forces, and our Fortune five hundred companies. Now not only the govt, but also the citizens are contacting for much more cyber protection, and much better and stronger personal computer methods. Naturally, this totally is appreciated by the lobbyists in the pc sector, and the cyber security software program sector.

Probably you are as troubled as I am about the potential of pc protection? I lately, mentioned an article in Homeland Safety Information, a single of several in fact, but it produced me cease and think. The article was released on July fifteen, 2011 in the Cyber Enterprise Section titled “Modern deluge of cyber assaults final results in report investing,” and it said

“The deluge of substantial profile cyber attacks on major companies and govt entities like the U.S. Senate, the CIA, and Sony has driven a sharp boost in desire for cyber security professionals in the 1st six months of this year alone, cyber attacks and information breaches have expense U.S. firms roughly $ninety six billion, nearly the complete for 2010 analysts project 2011 to be the busiest yr yet with an estimated $75.6 billion in cyber stability shelling out, surpassing last year’s document $63 billion.”

Now then, how arrive the a lot more we devote, the much more attacks we get, and the more stability methods we place up in defense, the a lot more chinks in the armor the cyber hackers discover? It would seem to me that the hackers are just as intelligent as people planning the systems, and probably, even among the same team of friends as those planning the firewalls. It appears way too poor that we have a match of instant escalation, and probably we need to have a new approach.

Probably what we need to have to do is modify the sport fully, go to a totally various system, and change everything all around so that we avert the varieties of cyber attacks we’ve been obtaining. Each time we devote more money, there seems to be far more media about the cyber attacks, and it seems to be generating a feeding frenzy in Washington DC, as they spend our taxpayer’s money for much more robust personal computer methods. 1 may possibly also ask why is the govt amassing so a lot info, what do they need it for – and is it actually aiding their performance?

Contemplate this if you will, federal government is already inefficient by its extremely character, bureaucracies constantly are. Just due to the fact the paperwork is much more effective moving information close to, does not mean what it is performing is correct, or an efficient process in the 1st area. The capacity to do more employing personal computers is irrelevant if what you are performing is just shuffling paperwork – if you shuffle the paperwork more quickly or far more of it, are you genuinely succeeding at something?

Now then, hold that considered for a 2nd, and let us go again to the other matter, that is to say the obstacle of our recent Internet, and computer techniques. No a single attempts to hack into mainframes any more correct, everyone is attempting to hack into the Internet now. What if we altered our method fully, creating a whole various method, something nicely beyond what we are currently using now. In that situation our pc techniques would not be open up to cyber attack. And it might give us time to breathe and beef up our methods right up until the cyber attackers figure out the new program.
