Technology brings result [Arab News (Saudi Arabia)]
(Arab News (Saudi Arabia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Published — Friday 23 August 2013Over the last few years, technology has become essential to the survival of the United States. It is so entrenched in their lives that they simply can't do without it. Every aspect of their country relies on technology to operate safely and efficiently.
Critical infrastructures encompass a number of sectors, including many basic necessities of their daily lives, such as food, water, public health, emergency services, energy, transportation, information technology, banking and finance, telecommunications, postal services and shipping.
All of these critical infrastructures increasingly rely on computers and Web networks for their operations. Computers and Web networks essentially run the critical infrastructures that are vital to their national defense, economic security, and public health and safety. Unfortunately, many computer systems and networks were not designed with security in mind. As a result, the core of their critical infrastructure is riddled with vulnerabilities that could enable an attacker to disrupt operations or cause massive damage. Cyber security has become America's a top priority. Without it, spies, foreign enemies, or even homegrown terrorists could sabotage critical operations. — Israrul Haque, Jeddah
