Brian Snow Sows Cyber Fears
That’s no less sensational than the Calgary Herald headline: “Total cyber-meltdown almost inevitable, expert tells Calgary audience.” That’s former NSA Technical Director Brian Snow talking to a university audience.
“It’s long weeks to short months at best before there’s a security meltdown,” said Snow, as a guest lecturer for the Institute for Security, Privacy and Information Assurance, an interdisciplinary group at the university dedicated to information security.
“Will a bank failure be the wake-up call before we act? It’s a global problem — not just the U.S., not just Canada, but the world.”
I know Brian, and I have to believe his definition of “security meltdown” is more limited than the headline leads one to believe.
