Conficker - April Fool or April Fright?
Wurldtech Reduces the Potential for Damage to Critical Industrial Infrastructure
"We've been getting anxious calls from industrial plant managers asking what to do about Conficker," says Wurldtech President and CEO
As people worry about the security of their home PC, or their business network, the systems and networks that manage and control the everyday services we've come to rely on - such as subways, traffic lights, electric power, and even water are just as vulnerable, and in fact, often more so. Protecting these systems is fundamentally a matter of determining how much security you need to protect the integrity of the operations, Williams says, whether it's the control of a nuclear power plant or an oil refinery, the results of cyber threats are the same - systems down. Unfortunately the impacts can be catastrophic.
"Regardless of the outcome," says Wurldtech's Williams, "the Conficker worm event again points to the necessity to be vigilant, and to develop dynamic security solutions that protect our world's infrastructure from cyber attack."
