While people do admit that there are some risks, they find it hard to believe they will be an actual target – and thus, the expense of securing a system outweighs the expected costs of a cyber terrorist attack. Meanwhile, folks in the security industry and the government have been crying wolf about cyber terrorism attacks for quite some time – and most people don’t seem to think either is providing unbiased information.
