Cyber terrorist threat

According to Lord West, the security minister, we face the threat of cyber terrorist attacks from Al-Qaeda, and others. Hackers could gain access to the computer technology underpinning our daily infrastructure and bring the country to a stand-still. Cyber hackers could sabotage our power and water supplies, ground aircraft, and cause total chaos in many other key areas that we take for granted. If these key areas were targeted simultaneously it could be catastrophic. Our reliance on computers has left us all in a very vulnerable position.
Lord West is looking to recruit former hackers to help counter this threat.
Let’s hope that they can protect us from the next potential wave of terror attacks.
