CIA Hack Attack Illustrates High Level Vulnerabilities

Q1 Labs : 17 June, 2011  (Technical Article)
Q1 Labs discusses the need for improved compliance to IT Security Policies in light of the recent high profile hacking attacks on the US Senate and the CIA

Security intelligence specialist Q1 Labs comments on the denial of service attacks by Hacker group Lulz Security on the websites of CIA and US Senate.


“In light of the weeks denial of service attack on the websites belonging to the CIA and the US Senate, UK public sector organisations are reminded of the critical importance of guarding their online perimeter,” said Tom Turner, senior vice president of marketing and channels for Q1 Labs.


“With the European Union considering tougher penalties and responsibilities to protect against cyber attacks, government agencies need the ability to ensure compliance with IT security policies, establish new agency-wide benchmarks and generate continuous, real time reporting to protect themselves against an attack like we saw this week with the activities of LulzSec.”
