Another Disturbing Report about Cyber Threats

02.21.14

“Acts of cyberwarfare –whereby a nation state launches cyberattacks against another country –are on the increase”…and “Cybercriminals are keen to learn new techniques that can make their own attacks more effective” are comments in Kaspersky’s Special Report entitled “Who is Spying on you?

Among other threats in the Report these cyberattacks against a nation’s critical infrastructure could include:

  • Loss of access to cloud-based services and data storage
  • Inability to process online financial transactions – including paying suppliers and employees or enabling customers to place orders
  • Supply chain issues – including late shipments and delays in the processing of imports/exports
  • Failure of telecoms systems – including communications via VOIP or LAN lines
  • Failure of other parts of a country’s critical infrastructure – such as power generation/distribution
  • Loss of data that’s required for compliance activities

With all the headline news about cyber attacks Kaspersky’s Report is hardly a surprise, but the Report should help sell more security products which is Kaspersky’s business.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
