Submission + - 'The Chinese Are Not Going to Stop'

Trailrunner7 writes: The news that the attack on Google in 2009 also compromised a database holding warrants for lawful intercept surveillance on users has raised fears about the security of national security data on private networks. Cyberspionage operations pose a serious threat to national security, and these attacks are increasing. Dennis Fisher spoke with Anup Ghosh of Invincea about the nature of the threat and what can be done to address it.

"A lot of people think of the military as living at the Pentagon, but a lot of this lives in the private sector. So the security of these networks is a matter of national security. The Chinese are not going to stop. Neither are the other groups. This is a treasure trove to be mined by anyone. At what point are we going to say, hey, we need to take this threat seriously and we need to innovate our way out of this problem. We can’t count on every user making the right decision on every email," Ghosh said.
