Venafi Black Hat Survey – Cyber Literacy
Venafi conducted a survey at Black Hat 2018 on the cyber security literacy of government officials Over 500 IT security professionals participated.
“Over the last several months, we’ve seen government officials from across the globe propose dangerous surveillance laws and protocols. For example, the Five Eyes international alliance has been consistently pushing for mandated encryption backdoors into private technology devices. They don’t seem to realize that the same encryption technology that creates barriers for law enforcement is also used to protect all types of classified intelligence and other highly sensitive government data. A backdoor sounds great until a malicious actor gets the key, which they always do.”
