Infrastructure is the Next Battleground for Cyber Terror, Warns Kaspersky

Eugene Kaspersky, founder of Kaspersky Lab, told a cyber-security conference in Japan that current measures to protect national infrastructures against cyber terrorism fall short.

General Director of Kaspersky Lab Eugene Kaspersky told an international conference on cyber security on Saturday that current measures to prevent acts of cyber terrorism are insufficient to deal with the rising threat of attacks on infrastructure objects, which must be given more protection.

“Today there is practically no system that will not be connected to the internet,” Kaspersky told delegates to the Cyber 3 conference, which took place in Okinawa, Japan, on November 7 and 8.

“For example, connection to a network is simply essential to update security programs, and other functions. Because of this, any system can become a target for a cyberterrorist.”

“Cyber terrorism is just a matter of time,” warned Kaspersky, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported.
