FBI Top Cyber Cop: We are losing the Hacker War

quote:

Shawn Henry, who is preparing to leave the FBI after more than two decades with the bureau, said in an interview that the current public and private approach to fending off hackers is "unsustainable.'' Computer criminals are simply too talented and defensive measures too weak to stop them, he said.

quote:

James A. Lewis, a senior fellow on cybersecurity at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said that as gloomy as Mr. Henry's assessment may sound, "I am actually a little bit gloomier. I think we've lost the opening battle [with hackers].'' Mr. Lewis said he didn't believe there was a single secure, unclassified computer network in the U.S.

quote:

In one such incident in 2010, a group of Chinese hackers breached the computer defenses of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a major business lobbying group, and gained access to everything stored on its systems, including information about its three million members, according to several people familiar with the matter.

quote:

The FBI's Mr. Henry said there are some things companies need to change to create more secure computer networks. He said their most valuable data should be kept off the network altogether. He cited the recent case of a hack on an unidentified company in which he said 10 years worth of research and development, valued at more than $1 billion, was stolen by hackers.

They wont start making progress against hackers until they start treating it like as bad a crime as it actually is.

Shit, look at the typical sentence these frickers receive when they are actually caught?

Risk reward is what it is. Right now, with it being so hard to catch them and with sentences being relatively light even if caught, there is virutally no disincentive to doing it.

As for govt sponsored hacking? Well, that's a problem unto itself.

I sort of like the fact that there's something governments and corporations can't control.

They need to take the gloves off...drones, SEAL hit teams, poison...whatever. Being truly feared, is the basis for not being screwed with.
