Security expert: More sophisticated attacks likely

Terrorists groups and criminal organizations are possible
perpetrators

By Grant Gross

The cyber attacks of recent years have been relatively
unsophisticated and inexpensive compared to the potential of
organized attacks, a cybersecurity expert said Tuesday.

Organized attacks by teams of hackers that have members with
expertise in business functions and processes -- as well the
rudimentary access and coding expertise that many current attackers
have -- could have a huge impact on a nation's economy, said Scott
Borg, director of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit, an agency
supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
