Our journey to find the best technology and innovation as part of THE WAVE CONNECTION® INNOVATION MARKETPLACE, continues with the search for the latest technology to assist with a critical issue affecting CEOs and Boards of Directors today – protection against CYBER ATTACKS — join me for a look into anew approach into cyber security affecting all businesses today…
THE CYBER ATTACK. Current headlines and U.S. government officials are warning that U.S. businesses should get ready for a barrage of digital retaliation from Iran after the Trump administration recently launched a cyber attack against the Islamic Republic’s rocket andmissile launching systems. The Director of Homeland Security Department’s Cyber Security Division advised that Iranian hackers are already targeting U.S. companies with specialized malicious software designed to wipe the contents of their computer networks rather than merely taking their data.
ARE YOU READY?
Cyber attacks have become one of the most prominent and critical issues of our time. As the volume and sophistication of cyber attacks grows, companies and organizations, especially entrusted with safeguarding information relating to national security, transportation, healthcare and/or financial records, need to take proactive steps to protect their sensitive business and personnel information.
All corporations and organizations, whether commercial or military, collect, process, transmit, distribute and store significant amounts of information and data on electronic devices, including confidential information such as intellectual property, financial data, personal information and/or other types of data from which unauthorized access or exposure could have adverse consequences.
THE INSIDE JOB. Organizations transmit sensitive data across networks into other devices in the course of doing business. Our nation’s top intelligence officials and authorities have cautioned that cyber attacks and additional spying are the top threat to national security, eclipsing even terrorism.
For an effective cyber security program, a corporation and/or organization needs to coordinate its efforts to thwart threats entire information system. Cyber security is ever – evolving. The nature of security risks requires more than perimeter security to protect only the most critical crucial system components. Since this approach is insufficient today, a more proactive and adaptive approach to cyber security is mandatory, including all aspects of physical and electronic security, risk management, legal considerations and data rights management.
THE CYBER TEAM. Recently certified from Harvard Kennedy School in Cyber Security and Artificial Intelligence, I realized that a unique alliance of resources is needed to fight cybercrime, which is now the reality of our world. With over 60% of companies not survivingthese type of attacks, and with cybercrime now estimated to cost over $600 Billion a year, CEOs, C-Suite executives and Boards must now consider cyber security to be beyond an IT issue. Executives and Board members are being held personally liable for these attacks and their consequences. As targets of these attacks, personal information and privacy considerations
have come to the forefront. Companies must comply with privacy laws in the United States and various countries.
