SANTA CLARA, Calif., January 27, 2010 - McAfee on Thursday is scheduled to release the findings of a new report on cybersecurity for critical infrastructure worldwide, conducted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Media are invited to attend, either in person or via phone.
When: Thursday, January 28, 2010 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. EST
What: Release of “In the Crossfire” Critical Infrastructure in the Age of Cyber War, Report on Cybersecurity for critical Infrastructure worldwide commissioned by McAfee, Inc. and conducted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)
Who: Report Findings: Stewart Baker, Lead Author of Report, Distinguished visiting fellow at CSIS and partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP
Where: CSIS, Center for Strategic and International Studies, 1800 K Street NW, Room B1
Description: The report surveyed 600 IT and security executives in enterprises that own and/or operate critical infrastructure in 14 countries around the world. The executives surveyed report that their IT networks are under repeated cyberattack, often by high-level adversaries such as nation-states, organized crime gangs or terror groups. The survey data gathered for the report paints, for the first time, a detailed picture of the way those charged with the defense of critical IT networks are responding to cyber-attacks, attempting to secure their systems and working with governments. The impact of such attacks is often severe, and their cost is high and borne widely.
