Cyber Insecurity: The 21st Century’s Version of Air Pollution

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

I love this analogy for the cyber liability threat we are all facing today.  The post World War II economic boom in this country caused a pollution problem that remains with us today.  While we can reduce pollution to acceptable levels, we cannot escape it.  In a similar way, the blossoming of technology-while creating jobs and wealth, is exposing us to a new threat.  Cyber Liability is the result of our reliance on technology.  We can’t escape it-if we don’t use the technology available to us our competitors will.  We need to learn how to live with this by-product, reduce the exposure and manage the risk.
