Cyberattacks in U.S. Only Expected to Get Worse

It’s only a matter of time before we’re hit with another massive cyberattack.

According to Fox News, “Co-founder of the hacking group LulzSec Hector Xavier Monsegur warned that cyberattacks against U.S.infrastructure are going to get worse exponentially.”  He added, “We do not have enough people to deal with the threats, we don’t have enough law enforcement that actually understands cyber and all of the organizations that I’ve worked with around the nation.”

That’s fueling a substantial need for protection with companies such as Plurilock Security (TSXV:PLUR)(OTC:PLCKF), Proofpoint Inc. (NASDAQ:PFPT), Crowdstrike Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:CRWD), Rapid7 Inc. (NASDAQ:RPD), and Zscaler Inc. (NASDAQ:ZS).

Most recently, President Biden told President Vladimir Putin that energy, water, health care, emergency, chemical, nuclear, communications, government, defense, food, commercial facilities, IT, transportation, dams, manufacturing and financial services were “off limits” to Russian attacks, as noted by Fox. Unfortunately, as we’ve also learned from the Cyberspace Solarium Commission, as quoted by Fox, “The U.S. is currently not designed to act with the speed and agility necessary to defend the country in cyberspace.”
