Why IT security contractors don’t fear cyber warfare

Here are three quotes from this article that highlight what every small and medium business and not for profit organisation need to focus on to protect themselves against Cyber Crime.:

“This isn’t a new threat, but it is getting worse and more brazen. One crime syndicate has even taken to offering a luxury sports car to the hacker who can come up with the most innovative scamming technique, in what appears to be a perverse ‘employee of the month’ contest. ”

“The first thing that’s needed is a profound shift in the teaching of the subject. Many IT security experts say the best cyber defence is a result of both technical measures and human behaviour.”

“An ability to educate end-user staff as part of creating an environment conducive to conscientious online conduct”
