This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-5-14-21: Pipeline Cyberattack: What's Next?

Written by

Cybersecurity experts have been saying for years that an attack like the one that temporarilly shut down the Colonial Pipeline this week, was inevitable.

Yet, a new report shows a majority of global chief information security officers (CISOs) say their organizations are unprepared to face such an attack, despite believing they will face something like it in the next year.

We talked to University of Akron Computer Science Professor, Dr. John Nicholas, who says he's surprised it took this long for an attack on something this big to happen.

Find out why, and what-if anything-we can do about it going forward.
