‘The Long Game’ this weeks Cyber Insights from The National Cyber Skills Centre

By . December 20, 2018
Many successful cyber criminals have one particular personal trait. Patience; and patience pays.

Being brought up in a rural community in on the Worcestershire / Gloucestershire border, life had a less frantic pace than the images of life and business that permeated into our living room from the TV. It was quiet, it was peaceful. To live here you had to learn something. You had to learn how to be patient...

A cyber criminal, a successful cyber criminal, is patient. They are not a hacktavist or a hacker, they are not the ones that are motivated by disruption or the advancing of a political, or ideological ideal. They are an old fashioned planner but with access to technology. They are calm, unassuming with a high level of technical skills. You can even have a sneaking respect for them. In an age of personality and where instant gratification is the reward for extroverted attitudes, the patient individual can be overlooked, almost dismissed. You dismiss these criminals at your peril.
