SANS: Lack of I.T. Security Training Makes U.S. Vulnerable


The SANS Institute warned that U.S. government, military contractor, and bank computer systems are facing a barrage of attacks from overseas hackers, and that network-security management lacks the training to mount an adequate defense.

"American government and corporate computer systems are being riddled with online attacks," said Allan Paller, director of research at Bethesda, Maryland-based SANS. "But there is a culture of secrecy, and government departments, defense contractors, and banks are not talking about the attacks." SANS: Lack of I.T. Security Training Makes U.S. Vulnerable - Yahoo!
