CyberSecurity is no longer the keyword -
With the rise of the new breed of cyber-terrorism (“Poli-Cyber™” terrorism) perpetrated by extremist groups such as ISIS/Daesh, an alarming new dimension has been added to a very challenging threat landscape.
Conventional cyber-attacks continue to increase exponentially, not only in their frequency but also in their sophistication. Some of these attacks have already damaged and threatened infrastructure networks and multinational companies around the world.
Conventional & Poli-Cyber™ Threats
Conventional cyber attacks carried out by amateur hackers and professional criminal gangs are already causing significant financial and reputational damage. However, Poli-Cyber™ terrorism has the potential to take the damage to a whole new catastrophic level.
And yet, the majority of corporations and many governmental organisations remain ill-prepared against conventional attacks, let alone the new Poli-Cyber™ threats, whose objectives are to cause maximum damage for maximum publicity.
What Experts Say
In his book Islamic State: The Digital Caliphate, author and expert Middle East journalist Abdel-Bari Atwan, the man who also interviewed Osama Bin Laden in 1996, describes ISIS as having a "Cyber Caliphate Division that successfully attacked the US government’s Central Command”.
Robert Hannigan, Britain’s GCHQ Director, commented “determined hackers can get in. They can cause damage. Can the business or public service keep going?”[i]
Later in June 2016 Hannigan warned referring specifically to ISIS and rogue states: “Terrorists and rogue states are gaining the capability to bring a major city to a standstill with the click of a button”[ii].
Ian West, who heads up NATO’s cyber-security services says “The threat landscape is vast, from malware and hacktivists to organised criminals and state-sponsored attacks. Things that we thought impossible can be done.”[iii]
West’s 200-strong team covers operations for about 100,000 people at 34 NATO sites. “Our intrusion detection systems find around 200m suspicious events each day”[iv] says West. The unit confirmed five very serious cyber attacks per week during 2014. Cyber terrorism is now treated in military and political circles as seriously as conventional attacks with bombs and tanks.
Majority still ill-Prepared
Alarmingly, more than 80 per cent of Decision Makers around the world are still unaware how vulnerable their organizations are. Cyber security defenses are being breached routinely, and traditional cyber defense strategies are failing regularly. Corporations of all sizes as well as governmental bodies are now at greater risk than ever before.
- Mitigating the damage caused by conventional attacks is proving increasingly challenging.
- Mitigating the damage caused by new Poli-Cyber™ threats will require an entirely new mindset and strategy.
- It is no longer about just cyber defence, crisis management and damage limitation,
It is now about Survivability.
“Cybersecurity is no longer the keyword - Survivability is”
