Case Studies

LONDON, UK: nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management solutions, has announced the results of a survey of 205 attendees to the RSA® Conference 2013 in San Francisco, California.

 

Survey findings include:

· 59% of respondents say firewalls are no longer effective against state-sponsored cyber attacks

· 48% said antivirus software is no longer effective against state sponsored cyber attacks

· 39% said intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are no longer effective against state-sponsored cyber attacks

· 50% of respondents say their organization is a potential target for state-sponsored cyber attacks

· 48% of respondents say China has the most advanced capabilities for state-sponsored cyber attacks, while 33% believe the U.S. has the most advanced capabilities

Tim ‘TK’ Keanini, chief research officer at nCircle said: “Security professionals know we all live in a world where state sponsored attacks are common and they also know that many legacy security systems that are updated after exploits or malware become public knowledge are no longer effective against these attacks. The hard truth is that there is no silver bullet for security."

Keanini added: “What is surprising about these figures is that only 50% of cyber security professionals believe their organizationis a potential target for state-sponsored cyber attacks. I would say the real figure is much higher. Attacks are so stealthy most organizations are unable to detect when they are being attacked.

Keanini also notes that public perception of the country with the most advanced nation state cyber attack capabilities has clearly been shaped by recent media coverage. “The reality is that nations that are really good at cyber attacks don’t make the news because they don’t get caught.
