1 min

Venable partner and retired Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett was quoted in a June 26, 2013 CSO Online article on the threat of cyberattacks. According to Cyber Ark's Global Advanced Threat Landscape survey which polled more than 900 business executives and IT professionals around the world, nearly 80% believed their countries were at a greater threat of cyberattack than physical attack.

"DDoS attacks have increased 600 percent over the last year,” said Admiral Barnett. He also pushed for programs that provide businesses with incentives to improve their security. “The fight against cyberattackers is in private hands in the United States,” he added. “Businesses need tax credits and liability protections to encourage them to make themselves more secure.”
