High-Skill, High-Focus

Those of you that I talk with know that the cyber attack on Sony of a few months ago made a huge impact on me. I’ve thought about it for days and weeks since and talked to many about it in informal and formal conversations.

Sony was the victim of a high-skill, high-focus attack. Very likely, most individuals and organizations would fail against such an attack. There but for the grace of God, go we…

An article in Forbes last December said such a hack could crater a company. I believe that day will come. I wrote about what the future might look like last year here.
