Are agencies prone to cyber protest?
Thursday - 2/16/2012, 6:42pm EST
Sam Rosenfeld, the chairman and co-founder of the Densus Group, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the definition of cyber protest and how federal agencies and other organizations can better understand their "protestor risk."
Rosenfeld tackled the same issue in a recent Security Debrief blog post:
Cyber-protest delivers all the same threats to companies that physical protest do: compromise of reputation; compromise of individual leaders and employees through doxing (the publishing of sensitive personal information on the internet); the compromise of physical infrastructure and assets (hackers can disrupt SCADA connected to the internet) or anything from the grid, from nuclear plants to electric turbines. As a result, if any of these components are attacked, the assault will have a significant effect on the financial interests of the company.
