So, in the words of the “Princess Bride’s” Inigo Montoya, “Let me sum up” with some key points: The number and sophistication of cyber attacks has increased dramatically over the past five years and is expected to keep growing. Given enough time, motivation and funding, a determined adversary likely will be able to penetrate any system that is accessible directly from the Internet, Snow said.
