Members of a panel of security experts today painted a gloomy picture of 
the cybersecurity landscape, in which rapidly evolving threats and 
conditions ensure that even the best solutions are likely to remain 
piecemeal and temporary.

Security efforts should focus on assessing and managing risk to 
information, members of the panel of industry and government officials 
said, and baseline security requirements mandated by government cannot 
be expected provide adequate security across the board.

=E2=80=9CWe should go in with our eyes open to the reality that if somebody 
wants the information, no matter what the baseline, they will get it,=E2=80=9D 
said Wayne Fullerton, solutions and operations director for Cisco 
Systems Inc.=E2=80=99s U.S. federal organization.

Levels of security need to be assigned to a given piece of information 
based on its value to the owner and to those who could steal it. After 
the cost of stealing information drops below its perceived value, =E2=80=9Cif 
people really want it, they will get it,=E2=80=9D Fullerton said.
