It is amazing how cyber crime, hacking, and computer viruses are in the news and all of a sudden everyone is interested and worried about their computer security.
Then a spell goes by where there isn't much in the media at all, and everyone forgets about it and becomes lackadaisical. The reality is that a cyber attack can happen at any time, and anyone who is a serious hacker can break into a system if they try long enough, and the people using the network or the computer IT security doesn't take it seriously.
This is why we need to be on our best guard at all times to protect our data, computers, IT departments, and government data storage systems. But sometimes the best defense is actually having the best offense. That is to say set traps for the Internet hackers, watch where they go, and learn from their infiltration techniques. And in doing so, we can also set traps which help us track of them.
In SpaceWars Online News there was an interesting piece published on June 28, 2011 titled; "Active Self-Defense Strategy Best Deterrent Against Cyber-Attacks" by Phil Ciciora (Champaign IL) from the SPX. The article stated in the teaser paragraph; "With the threats of cybercrime, cyberterrorism and cyberwarfare looming over our hyper-connected world, the best defense for the U.S. might be a good offense, says new research by a University of Illinois expert in technology and legal issues."
Indeed, I would agree with the expert at the University of Illinois, and I fully concur that the United States military needs a cyber Defense command. And I also know for a fact that if our corporation's IT departments are breached on a regular basis, no one will trust e-commerce in the future, and billions if not trillions of dollars (in the future) will be lost in sales, and it will hurt and impact our entire economy. Likewise, we have important infrastructure in our nation, which must also be protected.
If we don't go on the offense, and only have a defense system, eventually it will be breached, if not on a regular basis. In other words the hackers will keep trying, and trying, and trying until they finally succeed. And it's a lot like Donald Rumsfeld once said; "the terrorists only have to be right once, we have to be right all of the time," and I'd say the same thing goes for cyber terrorists, cyber hackers, and those who produce the viruses, worms, and destructive algorithms which could infect our cloud data centers in the future.
It is time to go on the offense with black helicopters if we have to, raiding the hacker's lairs, collecting their assets, electronic money payments, and the individuals themselves. Just as we might Osama bin Laden or anyone else that threatens the security of our major corporations, government, military, or our individual citizens. An attack against one, is an attack against all of us, as it threatens the flow of information, and jeopardizes our economy. Please consider all this and think on it.
