Fiber Optic Hack

Fiber

You would think Fiber optic systems were the solution to optimum data security since the replacement of hard wire. However, it is possible that intruders can tap into a fiber optic system without detection. Some loop holes were identified by Kimberlie Witcher at the University Mary Washington in a submission titled “FIBER OPTICS AND ITS SECURITY VULNERABILITIES”  It may not be a completely simple task, but with the right equipment,knowledge and access, it could probably be achieved by a mid-level hacker. Data security will always be a problem. Intruders not only have a variety of reasons for stealing or manipulating data, but also a variety of methods to obtain the data. Constant and up to date awareness and knowledge of the current risks and solutions is essential to ensure that all data is as secure as technically and financially possible.
