News of major data breaches, worms, malware, Trojans and other forms of cyberattacks seem to be a weekly occurrence. This week is no exception. Reuters reported on Tuesday that “The Federal Bureau of Investigation warned U.S. businesses that hackers have used malicious software to launch a destructive cyberattack in the United States, following a devastating breach last week at Sony Pictures Entertainment.”
While these big threats lead the evening news, the truth is that information systems, digital devices, critical infrastructure and computer networks are targeted every minute of every day. Security experts call these persistent attacks. They are an unfortunate consequence of our technology-dependent society.
