Here’s a few stories that caught my attention in the last 48 hours.
- Hackers cut cities’ power – So much for the invulnerability of the SCADA systems. If it can happen in other countries, it can happen in the US. There might be a bit more effort involved, but it can happen. Chris was nice enough not to include a direct “I told you so”, but he’s obviously pleased to be proven right. Why did I ever think our SCADA network would be any more secure than the rest of the Internet?
- Cyber unit pivotal in solving crime online and off – I haven’t listened to this yet, but it’s the first of a four part series on cybercrime. This could be another tool to use in your own companies awareness plan. NPR usually does a pretty good job of passing along information without dumbing it down too much.
