As cyber criminals and nation-state actors continue to adjust their tactics to maintain advantages, businesses and government agencies are struggling to counter the increasing sophistication of cyberattacks with the ability to seriously impact growth.
Testifying before a House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence hearing last week, National Security Agency Director Admiral Michael Rogers warned that a major cyberattack is, “Only a matter of the ‘when,’ not the ‘if,’” and that “We are going to see something dramatic” when it happens.
Rogers highlighted numerous threats facing the US, particularly collaboration between cyber criminals and foreign governments in conducting cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, financial firms and organizations in both the public and private sectors.
