My On Crime & Security Column: Thinking About Cyber Security

The web site AllBusiness.com published my latest On Crime & Security column this week.

The piece dealt with the threats to cyber security.

Speaking last April before the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, FBI Assistant Director Gordon M. Snow stated that the number and sophistication of cyber attacks has increased dramatically over the past five years and he expected this trend to continue to grow.

"The threat has reached the point that given enough time, motivation, and funding, a determined adversary will likely be able to penetrate any system that is accessible directly from the Internet," Snow said. "It is difficult to state with confidence that our critical infrastructure - the backbone of our country's economic prosperity, national security, and public health - will remain unscathed and always be available when needed."
