Last week, Brian Contos, CISO of the Advanced Threat Protection Group at Blue Coat Systems, discussed how cyberwar has become a great equalizer between nation states. While our understanding of cyberwar and states’ ability to execute a cyberwar strategy are in their infancy, Contos directs our attention to how attacks have shifted from creative mischief to stealing intellectual property, intercepting military communications and the destruction of computer systems. The recent news about Chinese hackers stealing designs for advanced weapons systems from the Department of Defense and the extent of frustration among agency officials about the scale of cyberthefts is just the latest example.
In this guest podcast, Richard Bejtlich, Mandiant’s Chief Security Officer, discusses the latest cyber challenges including cyberwar and China’s cyber espionage units, which were exposed earlier this year in the Mandiant APT1 report. Bejtlich’s podcast appears on Federal Blue Print courtesy of Bloomberg Government.
It's good to talk.
