Senators push for enhanced powers to battle botnets

May 24, 2017, The Hill

Jennifer Martin is quoted by The Hill in an article regarding the increased focus by law enforcement on botnets and the threats they pose to national security. "One of the reasons botnets are growing in prevalence is the growth of the Internet of Things,” says Martin. “As more and more things are connected, you can expect more and more things to be compromised and exploited.”

Martin adds that combating botnets is not purely a law enforcement issue. Companies also need to be building security into their technologies in the first place to prevent them from falling to hacking. “The preventative measures and security have to be built in,” she says. “Developers, manufacturers, and users have to employ a layered approach to defend against cyberattacks.”
