LONDON, February, 2. /TASS/. Terrorists will be able to perform cyber attacks against critically important infrastructure in the near future, and governments are not ready to that yet, chief executive of Kaspersky Lab Eugene Kaspersky was quoted by the British newspaper The Times on Monday.
According to the head of the Russian company that collaborates with Great Britain, Interpol and Europol in the fight against cybercrimes, “terrorists will employ specialists to perform attacks”. Moreover, as Kaspersky assumes, it will come to “modular” attacks, when paid programmers will participate only in a separate part of a total plan without knowing its entire objectives and aims.
“That’s the next step. I’m afraid that we are very close,” Kaspersky believes.
According to one of the world leading specialists in the sphere of information security, governments are scared of such a prospect. “They’re absolutely not ready for this challenge yet. They understand the problem, and it’s huge. But they don’t have the strategy in place yet,” the edition cites Kaspersky.
Setting an example of the effectiveness of hackers’ activity, the expert has reminded several recent notorious cyber attacks. “We have seen attacks on very well-protected banks. (Hackers) have successfully infected them. They can infect every enterprise if they really want,” Kaspersky affirms.
