RSA Chairman: Cyberterrorism is my top worry
The main IT security issues worrying Art Coviello, executive chairman of RSA, are the widespread availability of malicious tools threatening to spark off cyberwarfare and the increasing penetration of mobile devices at the workplace.
In an interview with ZDNet Asia, Coviello pointed out cyberthreats could escalate to an international level, with the possibility of terrorists getting their hands and taking advantage of cyberweapons such as Stuxnet or Flame--a worrying "dark" issue that kept him up at night. There is already "mutually-assured destruction" among nation states, he pointed out. "I hope we never see any instances of cyberwarfare," he said.
