IT Security from Deutsche Welle: “Cybersecurity: Why it’s ‘hard to protect yourself’ online”

Cybersecurity: Why it’s ‘hard to protect yourself’ online | World | DW | 02.11.2017

Governments have fallen victim to a string of high-profile cyberattacks in recent years. German IT expert Sandro Gaycken tells DW about cybersecurity’s shortcomings and why he thinks Kaspersky did not work with Russia.

DW: At the end of October, a new virus called “BadRabbit” attacked computer systems in Russia, Ukraine, Germany and other countries. Among the victims were media organizations, ministries and various businesses. The last few months have seen similar attacks by viruses like “WannaCry” and “Petya.” Can we defend ourselves against these infiltrations?

Sandro Gaycken: No, not really. There are of course a number of IT-security technologies, but they’re all still in pretty early stages and only work to a limited degree. That’s why it’s hard to protect yourself, especially when the attacker is somewhat clever.

Is that our new reality?

Yes, right now it is. But a lot of money is currently being invested in the cybersecurity market, so better products are on the way. But it’ll take at least five to eight years [to get them ready].

What is your advice? How could we at least limit the damage?

Don’t connect your devices to the internet.

IT Security from Government Technology: “3 Ways to Fight the Cybertalent War”

3 Ways to Fight the Cybertalent War

Getting and keeping top cybersecurity staff in government isn’t always easy, but there are strategies available to build your workforce.

History teaches us that great leaders build great teams. Surveys confirm and reconfirm that attracting and retaining talent is key to achieving organizational objectives and building a culture that makes a positive difference.

But attracting or retaining professionals with any credible cybersecurity experience into government positions has never been harder than it is right now. Constraints such as compensation packages make it hard to compete in our new “talent war.”

Further complicating this problem are government employees eligible for retirement. A public-sector “brain drain” is still predicted when staff with more than 30 years’ experience decide to retire.
