Ira Winker: Does recent hacktivism news justify enterprise hacktivism defense?

There's been plenty of recent hacktivism news involving rogue groups like Anonymous and LulzSec, but the question for enterprises is, does the hacktivism threat justify a specific enterprise hacktivism defense?

Some experts say it does, but Ira Winkler isn't one of them. In this video interview from RSA Conference 2012, the chief security strategist of Codenomicon explains why hacktivism isn't a legitimate concern for enterprises, what the future of hacktivism may look like and why those looking to conduct cyberattacks against controversial groups may not be hacktivists at all.
