Readers Respond: Fighting Cyber-Crime
Readers respond to the eWEEK editorial, "Fighting Cyber-Crime."I read with great interest your editorial "Fighting Cyber-Crime" (Dec. 12). I found this statement particularly poignant: "Theres still a lingering tendency to distinguish things in cyberspace from the same things in more familiar environments." With a new generation of surgically precise attacks against specific companies, cyber-criminals are causing more damage in destroyed or stolen information than many criminals do with a handgun.
Even more alarming is that, due to the targeted nature of these attacks, it often takes days or months before a company realizes that a significant breach may have occurred.
