TYSONS CORNER, VA, December 21, 2015 — BAE Systems foresees that the strategic priority of corporate executives in 2016 will be to protect their companies’ computer networks from potential cyber attacks, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.
Scott McVicar, general manager for Europe, Middle East and African region at BAE’s applied intelligence unit, said in a company press release published Thursday cyber attacks will potentially target devices that rely on the Internet of Things.
“We’re also likely to see an increased appetite among criminals for personal data gathered by IoT devices that show our ‘digital shadows’ – the behavior data that describe the patterns of our everyday lives, as well as more traditional identification and financial data, ” Vicar added.
