We’re still #1 at manufacturing online attacks

BKraemer Brian Kraemer Profile: BKraemer

The United States is still number one source of online attacks in the world, CNET reports.

Take that China!

The report goes on to say that 31% of all malicious online attacks originate within the United States, with an even higher percentage of credit card fraud originating with Old Glory and Uncle Sam as well. Those stats make me wonder what kind of damage is being to SMBs that the channel might be able to repair. It seems like it must be a matter of storage security being violated and private information is getting stolen by, what I like to call, malcontents. But where does the blame really lie? With the person who can hack into a private network and steal that information? Or does it lie with the company that isn’t keeping that information secure?

It isn’t the first time in the last 12 months that something like this has happened. So how should the problem get fixed? VARs, start your engines. By proposing a complete storage security program, VARs can provide a badly needed service. Check back on SearchStorageChannel.com tomorrow for our comprehensive Project Guide on Storage Security and start providing the services that most companies don’t realize they need.
