By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
England's nuclear facilities and airports have been put on high cyber security alert.
Along with other public transport networks they have been told to bolster their cyber defenses because of immediate threats.
The Telegraph media website asserted that these facilities need to improve their computer defenses because, if they don't - the entire nation will be endangered.
The obvious danger should be clear to the reader. Weaknesses in their computer systems could compromise the running of the nuclear systems. If computer security is lax in the airports and in the other transport systems, thousands of people are put at risk should there be a hack.
There is no reason for computers in these agencies to be susceptible. Too many lives are at risk. Excuses just don't cut it.
