The Crown Capital Management International Relations Cyber warfare finger-pointing places strain
BCS - Shortcomings in the methods employed by governments to monitor their IT networks and protect against cyber criminals could lead to increased tensions between nations as speculation grows over the source of specific attacks. According to Ross Brewer, vice president and managing director of international markets at LogRhythm, the inability of governments to quickly and correctly identify the perpetrators of cyber attacks against its networks can lead to finger-pointing, which could have a negative effect on political relations between countries.
Writing for SC Magazine, Mr Brewer says governments need to adopt new policies centred on the "continuous monitoring of IT networks" in order to enable "deep forensic analysis of growing amounts of data".
This way, "cyber attacks [can] be effectively mitigated and accurately attributed", removing the possibility of politicians wrongly accusing rival nations when attacks occur.
In order to achieve this, governments may have to adopt Big Data analytics, rather than continuing with simple "perimeter defences".
Cyber crime, cyber frauds, cyber attracts… well basically all the same but how about the justice given to the victims to the crimes on the internet are they all the same as well, or should I say yes they are the same and their common ground is, all of them were not given a justice. It seems like criminals get away from it. All the fraud warnings, fraud prevention and other guides and tips to avoid crime over the internet appear to be useless.
