Today is another September 11, fourteen years after the devastating attack on America’s working civilians in the World Trade Towers that were demolished within one hour. Thousands of citizens were killed. People are still dying from the cancer it caused from breathing in the debris ashes. There are 14 year old teens now that know nothing about the attacks but from a history lesson while there are people that will never forget the event like it happened this morning all over again. The problem is not over. People are under attack every day. It is as if no lessons have been learned from the tragedy at all.
How can we defend all employees and all their work and information? Well we aren’t. What they did can work to destroy 90% of existing companies. There are easily 5,000 hackers who can destroy companies today. There are still self- destructive terrorists willing to do another Twin Tower disaster today. Cylance is a company organized just for the purpose of stopping cyber wars. Our military is organized just for the purpose of protecting Americans and our interests. Both have been violated in the past 14 years. Both major attacks on our civilians and our information were not very sophisticated attacks but they worked to completion.
Both attacks prove that it does not take a lot of sophistication to compromise our lives. In 2012 Iran was blamed for an attack on Saudi Arabia’s Oil Company that destroyed 30 thousand computers. The Internet is unregulated and is the Wild West of hackers and crime with no Sheriff in sight because there is no law. Then why is so much of our lives disclosed on the Internet? All our information and all our finances? There are no easy solutions on line just like there are no easy solutions with ISIS terrorists chopping off the heads of innocent reporters and civilians. Populations are running out of countries seeking solace in Europe as we breathe right now.
How do you respond to all terrorism from all sides? We have to go after the leadership of terrorism and the revenue of the leadership then maybe we can at least see evil within our sight. As usual Congress has been reluctant to force legislation requiring American companies to invest in more cyber-security. The Sony incident has proved that we are vulnerable to other leaders and other countries. Faith is not enough when it comes to security. The Bush Administration dropped the ball today 14 years ago and their elderly misinformed Congress is dropping the ball now with cyder-security. God Bless America to wake up and protect all we have worked so hard for.
