-- politically motivated hacking -- of US companies.
Near times the Washington not and the Washington Post all latest victims.
So have we entered into a new air of cyber terrorism -- -- source fire founder and interim CEO is here.
The Cali can protect against it is this now the new cyber terrorism political all cyber terrorism.
You know cyber terrorism is that's that's a pretty broad term I guess and a lot of it is politically motivated these days whether the attacks from anonymous trying to make -- score political points.
Or Chinese Government deciding they need trying to track down those sources of information that are feeding these news stories.
Places like the Washington Post.
-- the New York Times so.
It certainly is a is a big motivated these days.
It's scary is that -- That that means they're spying on us so you're saying just -- you're going to be hacked at some point if you haven't been already what do you do to guard against this.
-- what I like -- -- and when I go and I start talking to people about security one of the points selling debt.
Bring up -- trying to get them to start thinking a little bit outside of the boxes you know would you do security differently if you knew your going to be hacked him.
Really people need to start thinking about in those terms because.
The -- that they they have in terms of defending their environments -- organizations just isn't up this half these days.
That's a thing although I -- the methods we have our old these firewalls or use listening it's not nothing's working so.
I'm company I'm nervous about this -- -- -- -- need to start looking at southern new offerings that are out there certainly there's a lot of development going on in younger companies and some of the older companies around.
Techniques for combating advance now whereas we college and dealing with not just think about security in terms of preventing the attacks from happening in the first place.
But being able to deal the attacks once they're inside because the fact the matter is.
If you get compromise you need to have just -- get a set of tools to figure out what happened to do something about it as you thought you had -- yeah that's -- in the first place.
She is very hindsight -- -- do you think the government should be more involved and mezzanine disproportionately strictly leave this a private companies.
I think it should be Amex there really needs to be information sharing between the government and private companies who see the private companies really.
Pushing the envelope.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Bring to bear on these problems -- you know as I've seen earlier and and you're network today.
Talking about the fact that there just aren't enough people right.
Amanda -- that's basically so we have that.
Think about this -- very intelligently.
My name do we go higher hackers like where we define these people that are smarter than hackers -- I'm gonna get hit if your hacking into -- system -- pretty darn Smart.
Well right so -- a lot of -- is very financially motivated again today we have people who are there for ideological reasons but.
You guys are doing these kinds of attacks against -- New York Times for example these people are being paid.
So -- a profit motive gets involved and you have -- train like big guys and pay them as well as you can train the bad guys or have bad -- -- self motivated them.
It's possible take it out there -- but that the challenges.
That the education.
That needs to be given these people to be effective -- -- the hackers is very in depth -- an education and them people need says tickets.
Did get -- up.
Basically yeah and bright and we need the staff to teach these people as well you know quickly and eat you said earlier -- -- really big broad term -- mean.
We gonna talk about somebody attacking our country in just shutting Wall Street down -- -- on the lights off on everything all together how do you guard against that.
Quote there's lot of independent seas between these systems but there's also a lot of safeguards between these systems so.
I think that you know having a wholesale shut down of Wall Street or the entire electric grid.
Is that still fairly difficult to achieve at least for.
Many long periods of time so a lot of these organizations that are that that face you know that are critical infrastructure that face these sorts of problems.
They're already working with the government there been identified.
And they are in these partnerships with government to make sure that they're doing the right -- so that they can't be taken down wholesale believing -- -- the dark.
-- thank you very very much thank you.
But wasn't because of the Super Bowl last night took about shutting countdown you actually -- -- and I think I did I was at a party I walked around like -- only one that thinks this is terrorism.
I'm Alan was not at first -- -- this is pretty well he's shipped its that I thought he -- I hate to be but you know.
Neurons is is that it's picked up the wires that we want to grow in it'll lose will say.
