On the technical side 11-18-2008

 WANTED: Chief Technology Officer for the US President Elect Obama pledged to appoint a US federal Chief Technology Officer.  The job description on the Obama website states, "...ensure that our government and all its agencies have the right infrastructure, policies, and services for the 21st century. The CTO will ensure the safety of our networks and will lead an inter agency effort, working with chief technology and chief information officers of each of the federal agencies to ensure that they use best-in-class technologies and share best practices."

 

 

Our future depends on technology. Everyone is aware of some of the more well known problems that our country is currently facing. Are we going to run out of energy sources? Could an enemy destroy our computer infrastructure? How health care information be securely shared between health care providers?

How can banks and merchants secure electronic money transactions? How can identities be made secure?

 

The president elect stated that some of the problems facing the country today may take years to resolve. The first step to problem solving is to realize that a problem exists  Now that we have a identified some of the challenges of the future, let's see how we can solve them. Do you have any candidates for the first US CTO?

 

 

HACKING PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS:

Newsweek reported, " The computer systems of both the Obama and McCain campaigns were the victims of a sophisticated cyber attack by an unknown foreign entity, prompting a federal investigation."

 

Obama campaign experts believe the hackers were Russian or Chinese. One has to wonder if these attacks were sanctioned by the Russian or Chinese governments. The idea has been proposed that the hacking was done to predict the policies of an Obama or McCain presidency.

 

Security experts will tell you that electronic espionage is happening all the time. It could be one country spying on another, industrial spying, or compromising personal computers.. The point is to protect your computer assets. Don't take security for granted.

 

CYBER CRIMINALS:

The FBI reports that cyber crime revenue is more profitable than drug trafficking. It is estimated that the bad guys have pulled in $1trillion per year. Www.thedarkvisitor.com  claims most of the biggest hacker networks are Chinese.

 

Eleven people charged in the TJ MAX debacle were from the US, Ukraine, Estonia, Belarus, and China. Your computer might be in the US but it could be attacked by someone on the other side of the world.

 

Any where there are economic problems, you will find an active hacker network. China has some very active hacker networks. There are highly trained individuals who don't have any possibility of a legitimate job due to the economic climate.

 

As long as the risk is worth is worth the perceived reward, cyber crimes will continue.
