Preparing for future attacks

Recent malware incidents have
shown how costly and damaging
cyber attacks can be. The Stuxnet worm is believed to have significantly affected Iranian nuclear processing, and was widely considered to be the first operational cyber weapon. Shamoon was able to compromise and incapacitate 30,000 work stations within an oil producing organization. Another targeted malware attack against a public corporation resulted in the company declaring a $66 million loss relating to the attack.
