FBI Expert: Hackers Are Winning

In the battle of bytes, the U.S. is failing, the FBI’s top counter-hacking expert said Wednesday. Shawn Henry, who spent 20 years working with the Bureau to fight cybercrime, is taking a job in the private sector, but there’s much left to be done to fight hackers, he said. While Sony and the Nasdaq have fallen prey to the digital buccaneers who prey on computer networks, Henry said that the current approach to policing the Internet is “unsustainable,” and that a new approach is necessary to secure private and personal computers.
