It doesn’t matter if you are a part of a government, a company the size of a major motion picture studio or a ten person small business, recent attacks on companies like British Airways, Ebay, and the Indiana government website, have brought security to the forefront of everyone’s minds.
Prominent congressmen U.S. Rep Jim Himes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee’s subcommittee on the National Security Agency and Cybersecurity said in a speech at UCONN on Monday, that “In addition to being a pressing national security concern, cybersecurity is one of the most urgent economic issues facing our country,” Himes said. “The cyber-attacks against Anthem, Target, Home Depot and Sony underscore the damaging consequences of cyber-attacks for the safety and security of Americans’ personal information, as well as a company’s bottom line. These attacks will continue to increase in frequency and sophistication.” Himes later conceded there isn’t any way to fully prevent cyber-attacks.
