Public Sector Watch: The cyber attribution challenge


Welcome to Public Sector Watch where we debate data and analytics issues affecting government, education and healthcare. Today, we tackle the issue of cybersecurity, data breaches and the challenge of cyber attribution.

Last year alone, developers created more than 300 million new variants of malware, viruses and other nefarious code translating into nearly a million new threats a day; the number right now is probably even higher.

Unfortunately, the Internet fosters anonymity a lot more than security—which gives bad actors a cloak of near-invisibility, and a feeling of invulnerability. Near-invisibility, however, is not complete invisibility, and analysts and investigators do have options. In this interactive Google Hangout, noted authors and industry experts examine the cyber attribution challenge.
