“The number of cyber attacks aimed at taking over systems that control utilities and other critical industries is on the rise, according to a senior Department of Homeland Security official.

‘It’s certainly a trend,’ said Greg Schaefer, assistant secretary for DHS’ Office of Cybersecurity and Communications on Tuesday at an event hosted by the Defense Writers Group.

‘It’s widely recognized that the cyber ecosystem we have today favors the offense and not the defense. It is simply too hard to secure the systems,’ he added.”
