BBC cyber attack confirms ‘relentless threat’ to online resources, says Eversheds
Liz Fitzsimons, data protection expert at Eversheds, has commented on news that the BBC faced a cyber attack on Christmas Day.
She said: ‘The cyber attack on the BBC on Christmas Day confirms the relentless threat to our online resources and economy and how criminals will try to exploit any perceived weakness or distraction to their advantage.’
According to Fitzsimons, this incident underlines why warning systems and reactions to cyber attacks must continue to operate effectively even on 25 December, when criminals may think they can catch people off guard.
