WPIX11 interviews Raj on DOD breach
On May 28, 2013, on the WPIX 10 O’Clock news, the lead story was about China hacking the US Dept Of Defense.
The attackers exfiltrated data and information on:
- The F35 Joint Strike Fighter (the most expensive weapon ever produced)
- The V22 Osprey Marine Combat Aircraft
- and other systems
Jay Dow interviewed me on air regarding the CYBER and PHYSICAL consequences of this theft.
Cyber-security expert Raj Goel says the Pentagon faces a monumental challenge in securing its classified data.
“From the information security side, whoever acquired this information could be Russians could be north Koreans, could be anybody. They now have a really good insight into how the systems are built, and they can sit there and started planned attacks to take down our digital battlefield. Our real battlefield is no long just guys with guns, it’s the information assets that control the network, that controls the soldier and the tip of the spear. And what this does now is give the attackers a blueprint on where to go looking for weaknesses in our defenses,” Goel said.
