This begs the question, when it comes to IT security what are we the most afraid of? We asked a few experts for their view…
Kevin Haley, director of product management at Symantec Security Response, explains that with millions of devices connected to the Internet, “and in many cases running an embedded operating system, they will become a magnet for hackers.”
And according to Knoll managing director Tim Ryan, the thought of other potential Snowden’s is a very real one. “Companies should know who they are giving their data to and how it is being protected. There’s a tremendous amount of data compromised today where the act is never discovered or disclosed.”
Jarno Limnell, director of cyber security at Stonesoft, worries that “within the next couple of years, we will experience an increasing number of cyber attacks resulting in militaristic and economic damage. Cyber is the new battlefield, and the fifth element of warfare.”
