Following the news about the Donald Trump’s statements on the importance of strengthening US cybersecurity, Igor Baikalov, Chief Scientist at Securonix commented below.

Igor Baikalov, Chief Scientist at Securonix:

igor_baikalov“To defend against somebody and to launch ‘crippling counter-cyberattacks’, we better be sure who this somebody is.

Attribution remains the most difficult aspect of the cyber warfare. The chances of hitting an innocent bystander who was set up for a fall by the more sophisticated adversary are too great to dismiss as a collateral damage.

The need for accurate attribution will lead to increased traffic monitoring and surveillance both at the infrastructure and the endpoint levels. Prepare to see a significant increase of the NSA budget.”
