e-Crime & Information Security Paris

France is at the epicentre of two of the most significant escalations in the world of cyber-threats: the increased participation of state-actors testing their capabilities against private companies and the emergence of the Internet-of-Things as a vehicle for next-generation DDoS and other attacks. Conventional wisdom says that companies should focus on the everyday threats, such as phishing, and not worry too much about the rare and exotic – like state actors. France shows that that view is out of date. The recent attack on TV station TV5Monde came close to destroying the internet-connected hardware on which the station relies to transmit its programming. The attack took down the entire station and is one of the first times that a cyber-attack has had the single purpose of destroying physical, private-sector infrastructure.
