AEP Networks Comments On South Korea Cyber Attacks

AEP Networks : 07 March, 2011  (Technical Article)
Websites targeted in South Korea exposes flaws in the country's ability to protect critical infrastructure from cyber attacks
AEP Networks Comments On South Korea Cyber Attacks

South Korea has been hit by a series of cyber attacks which have targeted some of the country's leading websites.


Mark Darvill, director of trusted security firm AEP Networks comments: “Whilst no long term damage was done on this occasion, the attempt to bring down a number of South Korean institutions connected to the critical infrastructure of the country highlights a massive flaw in the levels of cyber security deployed in the region.”


“Whether or not this was a politically motivated attack remains to be seen. The fact that each and every one of the organisations hit play a key role in the national security of South Korea and its economy suggest that this is a targeted attack. Governments should sit up, take note and be prepared. All organisations who are involved in the critical infrastructure of a country need to ensure that they deploy the absolute highest level of security. This is not only to protect assets and internal sensitive data, but also to guarantee that national security is in no way compromised.”


AEP Networks provides the highest grade security technologies to Government, military and enterprise organisations to support their mission critical applications and networks.
