Security threat changing, just like a year ago

John Thompson say security threats are changing.

“While a few years ago many people were much more focused on attacking the machine and attacking the broad-based activities that were going on online, now all of a sudden we’ve noticed a significant shift in both the type of attack and the motivation of the attack,” he said. “The attacks that we see today are more targeted and more silent, and their objective is to create true financial harm as opposed to visibility for the attackers.”

This isn’t news – instead it is simply a reminder.
