Generally speaking, no society is not prepared…nor are most IT shops based on what I see in my work.
I think the overarching issue is the fact that many (most?) people don’t truly understand computer security and what’s at stake…hence the continued security gaffes we see.
The Mandiant APT1 report was fascinating…some eye-opening things for me and I live and breathe this stuff every day. Should be mandatory reading for all.
We can claim compliance with this or cybersecurity for that. I still think we’ve got a long road ahead of us.
