Attackers Redefining Objectives, Approaches


05 Oct 2017

Partner John P. Carlin, co-chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Global Privacy & Data Security group, addressed the changing nature of cyberattacks as a panelist at The Cambridge Cyber Summit in early October.

 “We think of the recent U.S. election hacks as a cyber Pearl Harbor. But, what happened there? We were thinking and looking in the wrong direction,” he said. “It’s hard to predict where threats are going. But it’s important that we re-conceptualize how we are anticipating the next attack. Increasingly, (adversaries) are not trying to attack our stuff. We need to step back and rethink how we are defending our networks, but also what needs to be defended.”
