Richard Blech, CEO & Co-Founder, Secure Channels, on today’s news that a CIA-backed tech company found on the Web logins and passwords connected with the DOE, DoD, Dept. of Justice, Dept. of the Treasury, the CIA and the Director of National Intelligence.
Richard Blech, CEO & Co-Founder, Secure Channels:
“This is further demonstration of catastrophic, systemic failure. And what will the hackers ultimately do with these credentials? They will of course use them for secondary breaches with far greater implications. Sooner or later, and it unfortunately appears that it will be sooner, highly organized, deeply funded hackers going to use these credentials to gain very deep access to critical agency resources. Within the Department of Energy? The Department of Defense? What harm will we do to ourselves and other nation states through sloppy security? If data had been deeply encrypted and protected with multi-factor authentication, little to none of this credentialing information would be available, and absolutely none of it would allow access to troves of some of the planet’s most sensitive data and powerful capabilities.”
