Shawn Henry, 24-year veteran of the FBI’s cyber security division, stated that he is surprised a massive cyber attack hasn’t happened yet, and feels it is “very very likely” that one is due to happen in the near term.
In the CBS interview, Henry claims state-sponsored actors like China and Russia are already infiltrating and causing damage to networks, yet he provides no proof of this.
To date, all suspected attacks have been proven to be false alarms despite the media hype. Furthermore, it is the U.S. and Israel who are among the leaders in the rapid evolution of the offensive cyberwar arms race.
This coincides with the ramp-up of cybersecurity legislation. Coincidentally, it is Lieberman who is interviewed for the video below. Lieberman has been at the forefront of proposed cyber tyranny, and alludes to a potential cyber 9/11 when he says that would-be cyber terrorists can “do as much or more damage than the terrorists did on 9/11 by knocking out our power grid for weeks, by incapacitating all of our banks.”
