McAfee-Sponsored Cyber Defense Report Reveals Challenges in Cyber-Readiness of 23 Countries

Tue January 31, 2012

McAfee and the Security & Defence Agenda (SDA), the leading independent Brussels-based think-tank specialist in security and defense issues, released the findings from their report, “Cyber-security: The Vexed Question of Global Rules,” the first and most extensive of its kind.

The report, written by the SDA and sponsored by McAfee, examines the current state of cyber-preparedness around the world, and is based on survey results from 80 policy-makers and cybersecurity experts in the government, business and academic sectors from 27 countries (including Canada).  The countries were ranked on their state of cyber-preparedness and Canada received 3.5 stars out of five, putting it in the company of Australia, Austria and Japan.

Some key findings include:

  • 57 per cent of global experts believe that an arms race is taking place in cyber space.
  • 43 per cent identified damage or disruption to critical infrastructure as the greatest single threat posed by cyber-attacks with wide economic consequences (up from 37 per cent in McAfee’s 2010 Critical Infrastructure Report).
  • 45 per cent of respondents believe that cybersecurity is as important as border security.
  • The state of cyber-readiness of Canada, the United States, Australia, UK, China and Germany all ranked behind smaller countries such as Israel, Sweden and Finland (23 countries ranked in report).

**Please see the infographics showing the rankings of 23 countries, including Canada at http://www.sawebdev.ca/mcafee/McAfee_Cyber_Defense_2012/.

Roof Topping: Photographing Cities From Atop Skyscrapers

Tue January 31, 2012

It’s crazy and probably illegal in some cases, but a new fad has developed and involves getting to the very top of buildings and photographing the scene below. The images are dramatic and one of a kind but “roof topping,” as this guerilla art is named, may well get someone killed as they seek the thrill of getting up there.

The View From The Back Seat Of An Abandoned Car

Tue January 31, 2012

Netherlands-based photographer Alícia Rius finds beauty where most of us would find rust, dirt and ugliness. She shoots from the back seat of abandoned cars and captures not only the view through the broken windows but the interesting details of the car itself. Looks very much like HDR photos.
