Can we protect our National Critical Infrastructure from a major cyber-attack?

Can you imagine a world where our water, energy and transport systems just stop working? How about our hospitals, telecoms and financial services?

It’s a picture I struggle to visualise, and yet we are told that the risks to our national security have never been greater. So, how safe actually is our National Critical Infrastructure right now and are we able to protect ourselves? Questions we’ll be exploring on this episode of the teissPodcast.

Tim Mackey, Principal Security Strategist at the Synopsys CyRC (Cybersecurity Research Centre) about the ominous potential of a cyber-attack on our National Critical Infrastructure. We discuss the threats, the problems and some possible solutions.
