Founder of US-Cert reacts to Russia cyberattack on US
Director of US-CERT, currently Tenable CEO, Amit Yoran has called the alert unprecedented and a wake-up call for the industry at large:

"The fact that the DHS and the FBI have attributed attempts to attack and compromise critical US infrastructure to Russia is unprecedented and extraordinary. From my time as the founding director of the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) in the Department of Homeland Security, I have never seen anything like this. It's a wake-up call for the industry and a reminder that we are still not doing the basics well and that our defence needs to constantly evolve and adapt." -- Amit Yoran, CEO, Tenable.
