London (PRWEB UK) 10 October 2012
Cyber security attacks have outpaced defensive efforts over the past several years with groups of attackers, state-sponsored or otherwise, researching new vulnerabilities and threatening networks. This highlights the importance of threat deterrence, as part of an effective cyber security strategy.
Former FBI lawyer and chief of the bureau’s Cyber Intelligence Section, Steven Chabinsky has noted that “Physical security focuses first on threat deterrence, not vulnerabilities. Networks can't be fortresses or bunkers. Dynamic systems are incompatible with vulnerability focused systems”.
