Cyberattacks cost the Pentagon 100 million

Cyberattacks cost the Pentagon 100 million

The Pentagon has spent $ 100 million in the past six months on preventing possible computer attacks, according to what some military leaders said, cited by CNET.

Officials did not specify, however, that part of the $ 100 million was spent on virus cleaning compared to external attacks and security problems caused by Department of Defense officials.

He said only that, last year, it was necessary to shut down 1,500 computers due to a cyber attack, while banning the use of external devices, due to their ability to spread viruses.

The maxim advocated is that it is better to invest in preventing attacks than having to pay for the damage caused after an incident, the US Department of Defense said.
