In recent times, we have witnessed an increase in the news reporting of cyber attacks. This has covered almost all spectrums of society. We have seen cyber attacks infiltrating the financial industry, which can lead to not only chaos but uncertainty, worry and inconvenience for all involved. We have seen high profile data breaches in the entertainment industry (Sony) which even affected a major motion picture release. We have witnessed cyber attacks even on government and security organisations such as the CIA and the Pentagon.
