Do we really want to let our phantasy do it’s work? Well, let’s think a little bit:
In the last few weeks we often got articles like those: Chinese Web sites used to target U.S. systems-report. From time to time we see sources claiming that different countires are attacking each other using the Internet. This has a name: It is called Information Warfare.
Now, there has been some chatter aroung terrorists as well. You see it here: Al-Qaida Recruiting Target: Skilled Hackers
If you bring this together it gets frightning. There is already a small war going on but think yourself: Would your company survive a targeted, skilled attack? If you tell me now, that you will never ever be a target, please think again. Those people try to make sure that they attack in a way we are not expecting them to do.
It kind of scares me….
