The 2014 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report shows that espionage is the fastest growing motive for cybercrime. Financial motives have declined over the same period at about the same rate. I’d argue that espionage is ultimately linked to financial motives. Either corporate or government espionage is about having political, military or trade power. Money is inextricably linked to all three. Hacker groups are being formed by governments and organized cybercrime syndicates across the globe. They are well funded and have clear targets. Information security is going to become the next “theater” in which we fight wars. Are you ready?
