Director of National Intelligence Cites Persistent Cyber Attacks

Malicious cyber activity is occurring on an unprecedented scale with extraordinary sophistication and the existing balance in network technology currently favors malicious actors, stated Dennis C. Blair, Director of National Intelligence, in prepared testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He cited persistent, unauthorized, and at times, unattributable presences on exploited government and private networks. Blair also emphasized that network convergence, as well as Web 2.0 business processes, amplifies the opportunity for disruptive cyber attacks.
