A few months before that, computer systems at Canada’s National Research Council suffered a massive hit by a cyberattacker. The question is what we can do to stop the spies and cyber criminals? Marc Goodman, a former beat cop who specializes in technology and law enforcement, attempts an answer in his new book Future Crimes: Everyone is Connected, Everyone is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It. He spoke to National Post‘s Rachel Greenspan from his home in Southern California. How do you begin to attribute attacks like the recent hack on more than 100 banks around the world to specific groups of people? It’s a problem, both at the criminal level and at the nation-state level. Any decent bad guy will obfuscate their online traffic.
