Tags: Security

Summary : This presentation will be a combination of my two articles published in the ISSA Journal last August 2009 and this June 2010. I will discuss current cyber threats, how nations have reacted to them, or not, the types of threats, where the line might be drawn between electronic espionage/cyber crime and “acts of war,” the significant challenges nations face, and potential solutions. I will also discuss some more practical security solutions for business to reach beyond their networks to create a greater security posture.
