Security professionals say politicians have no idea of ​​cybersecurity


In our time, we are making stricter laws cybersecurity is becoming more and more imperative. However, the vast majority of its professionals cyberspace who participated in this year's Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, agreed that politicians are unable to process the arrangements effectively security for the internet.

While 80 percent of security professionals agree that more security and privacy legislation is needed, especially for social media that store personal data, they do not believe politicians are well aware of cyber risks to develop and implement effective security arrangements.

Specifically, 93 percent of security professionals do not trust social media to protect their personal information, 82 percent do not trust government to protect their personal information and 80 percent say government officials do not understand digital risks well.

"There are many legislators, regulators and law enforcement officials around the world who are proposing controversial surveillance laws, such as cryptocurrencies. backdoors controlled by the government, "said Kevin Bocek, vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence at Venafi. "However, security professionals lack confidence in the ability of policymakers to improve cyber security, given the growing number of government breaches in the United States and around the world."

Bocek argues that while new legislation is really needed, politicians need to learn more about cybersecurity before moving on.

"The results of our research send a clear message that governments need to improve their knowledge of cyberspace in order to make a significant impact and help security advocates protect the global economy, freedoms and privacy"He said.

A recent study which was carried out by IBM in the wake of the increasing attacks ransomware against cities, reveals a gap between taxpayers 'and public resources' expectations, creating a challenge for local and state governments to combat the threat of ransomware. Taxpayers see ransomware as a threat to their personal data and data data of their city and the 60% of US citizens questioned are against their local governments using tax dollars to pay ransom.
