Mr. Verton talked about cyber-terrorism, which he defined as the intentional use of computer systems for targeting banking, telecommunications, and infrastructure control machines with the object of causing economic and or physical damage. He argued that, although no major cyber-terrorism attacks had yet occurred, the vulnerability of critical systems had been proven and the U.S. was not prepared to meet a cyber-terrorism attack. Mr. Verton also responded to audience telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail.

Mr. Verton is the author of Black Ice: The Invisible Threat of Cyber-Terrorism, published by McGraw-Hill Osborne Media. close
