National cyber defence strategies lack public confidence, report shows
Recently released findings of a survey conducted by Defence IQ indicate that only 35% of the public have faith in the cyber defence strategy devised by their national government.
The global survey, undertaken ahead of the 2012 Cyber Defence Forum taking place in Prague from October 23-25, sought to discover the most current trends in action and perception when it comes to both personal cybersecurity measures and overall confidence in national defence policies.
Other key highlights from the study include the discovery that the cyber threat causing most concern is that of potential foreign state attack, while hacktivism and terrorism do not at present rate highly as credible risks to national security within the cyber domain. Meanwhile, the majority of respondents admit to having suffered from 3 or more cyber attacks in the past year. View the full report here: http://bit.ly/PtiTTI
According to the Defence IQ team analysing the results, the study was designed "to gauge whether the current measures for cybersecurity are understood, are trusted, and are being appropriately implemented, as well as find out what makes us tick when we consider our own virtual vulnerabilities."
The findings of the report are to be used as a point of reference during discussion sessions at the Cyber Defence Forum, which will focus specifically on the challenges, operations and solutionsfacing armed forces and governments as they formulate national strategies to keep their defensiveand offensive cyber capabilitiescurrent and in-line with the international community.
Confirmed speakers include decision makers from European, African, and North and Central American nations, as well as operators from NATO, ENISA and Georgia Tech.
