QOTD - PwC on APTs

The most sophisticated, adaptive and persistent class of cyber threats is no longer a rare event.
The report goes on to say:
In the few short months since this survey was launched on February 10, 2011, for example, leading organizations worldwide have been targeted by Advanced Persistent Threat attacks. These entities include national governments, nuclear laboratories, security firms, military contractors and an international organization that oversees the global financial system.
Yet APT isn’t just a threat to the public sector and the defense establishment. It’s an increasingly urgent issue for the private sector as well.
