Destructive Malware – The New Trend?

newsThe concerning trend of malware being used to create mayhem within an organization or across a large population of disparate devices seems to be here to stay.

Within the security industry, one must think about what the response needs to be if, for example, enterprise security systems were targeted in such a way as to bring them down for days at a time. Whether through a vulnerability in the OS, connected devices (IP cameras, etc…), or software that manages the system(s), the threat is real. It is plausible that targeting physical security systems will be especially attractive due to the potential for capturing “private” video, interacting with the physical world (door control, sounding alarms), or gaining notoriety for breaching systems that are perceived as more secure than others.
