Mr Weinstein (Dasient) suggested a more co-ordinated industry approach was needed to crack the problem.

"One of the real keys to solving this is that the good guys need to co-operate and share information, share data and communicate with one another more rapidly because we know the bad guys are doing those things.

"We need to make sure we are doing it as well and better than the bad guys," he said.
