Richard Martin's Monday Brilliant Manoeuvres
November 5, 2012
Active, covert threats will continue to grow, and companies must be on the lookout for attacks not just from direct business competitors, but also from actual and potential opponent groups.
At the end of 2011, the computer networks of Stratfor, a strategic forecasting consultancy, were hacked. Financial and other confidential client records were stolen. A group that was opposed to Stratfor's activities was presumably at the origin of this break-in. Stratfor's systems and operations were compromised for over a month, and the company had to invest considerable sums and effort to get back on track.
Most of the intelligence that can be generated about threats and opportunities is staring us in the face, if we are open to seeing it. We have to keep an open mind and be on the lookout for significant changes. We have to keep employees apprised of the situation and objectives so they can also be on the lookout for threats and opportunities, and communicate these to management.
