Online Cold War

In USA TODAY article published this week, titled, “Facing New Cold War Online, America Needs Cybersecurity overhaul,” writer John Shinal explains the impact of the rising number of cyber security attacks. “America’s approach to cyber-security is in need of a significant overhaul,” he stated.


In the article, Shinal writes that federal agency defenses have not been enough to protect U.S. businesses and individuals from malicious system breaches. In last year alone, the number of major hacks rose by almost a quarter.


“The worst attacks are now coming from criminal organizations, foreign-nation states and terrorist groups with ample resources — not from individuals…Given that a large number of these attacks are coming from strategic U.S. rivals such as China and Russia, as well as militant Islamists with anti-American ideologies, the situation has gone beyond mere espionage,” he wrote.


The situation is so dire that the question is no longer if U.S. companies will be attacked, but when. The online Cold War of the 21st century is here, so how are we going to fight? Businesses of all sizes need to arm themselves properly. That’s why CertainSafe® employs MicroEncryption® and MicroTokenization® techniques that protect against cyber terrorism.
