The video’s a bit naff but I have often said “Why go to all that expense and trouble of invading us – just take out a few supermarket and distribution mainframes and we’ll be fighting each other for food outside Tesco”
It occurred to me that that same course of action is open to us in reverse to force bullies to be accountable to their own people. Invading other countries just seems old fashioned.
As does our way of responding to it. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some pretty terrifying geeks over the years, and I have also met lots of ex military who’ve made careers in cyber. I know who I’d rather have on my side.
It’s a bit like the British Army struggling to cope with the Boers because they wouldn’t line up in straight lines and fight properly!
