Security Apocalypse

RSA – hacked
Lockheed Martin – hacked
Northrup Grumman – hacked
L-3 – hacked
Sony – hacked
Nintendo – hacked
Gmail – spear phished
PBS – hacked (and seriously?)

There must be millions of corporate security presentations that start off with the premise that the security apocalypse will soon be upon us if security doesn’t receive premium investment. It feels to me as if the security apocalypse long promised has now arrived. Whether these events are coordinated or independent, whether they are script kiddie cracking or cyber warfare, does this harald a new dawn? The risks which were once deemed remote have now been exploited multiple times. Is this a wake-up call or is everyone still yawning when security is mentioned?
