Commentary and Opinions

The Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2014 Identity Fraud Study revealed that 13.1 million Americans became victims of identity theft last year. This startling statistic underscores the determination of malicious actors to access sensitive data. Despite the rise in exploits, vital aspects of security -- such as encryption -- has tended to slip through the cracks.
The possibility of governments collecting and analyzing personal data changed dramatically after the enactment of The Patriot Act in 2001. The public outcry following WikiLeaks and the NSA PRISM program has kept controversial data collection methods in the headlines over the past few years. The legality of this type of data collection is still in question.
When it comes to cybersecurity, boldface security organizations can seem just as susceptible to hacks as anyone else. For example, NATO suffered over 2,500 significant cyber attacks in 2012 alone. Security experts believe that the number of sophisticated offensives against NATO is likely to increase over the coming years.
Unfortunately, none of us has any trouble imagining a security breach. Breaches are so frequent these days, so fast and so clever, that seemingly out of nowhere we could find critical infrastructure threatened, networks at risk, markets in danger.
When newspapers, popular magazines, and cable news channels run stories on public safety security and video surveillance, their knee-jerk reaction is too often a clever reference to “Big Brother” and an implication that something dangerous and sinister is happening.
