Cyber Security Portents For the Year Ahead


The Security Ledger site reports on premonitions held by security professionals as they prepare to assemble for the Black Hat event coming up in Las Vegas August 7th and 8th.

The Ledger titles the post: “Ahead of Black Hat: Fear and Pessimism in Las Vegas”.

Ahead of Black Hat, “A survey of information security professionals by conference organizers reveals deep misgivings about the security of U.S. critical infrastructure and pessimism about the government’s readiness to respond to large scale cyber attacks…

“Almost two thirds (63%) believe that voting machines are likely to be hacked in next year’s presidential contest. An identical share said they believed that Russian offensive cyber efforts will impact the U.S. elections.”

Not a rosy outlook, we’d say.
