Cyber this, Cyber that… Much has been made of what pain Cyber will cause over the next few years. From my perspective Cyber is still a real world problem. The fear that using dark cyber magic the naughty nation states or criminals will steal your data has been realised and fairly quickly accepted (if somewhat reluctantly).
However the disruptive power of technology is the big fear du jour - disrupting energy supplies, communications, infrastructure using malicious technology is all possible and the impact is mostly human.
Perhaps we worry about this so much as we are all addicted to technology - however the root, vector and effects are all human.
Rather than look for entirely Cyber solutions for perceived Cyber problems perhaps the human angle should be considered alongside more often.
Humans on their own can cause plenty of disruption. And it is the impact of disruption we are worried about.
As you can see from the article below, some very determined protesters have cost Sussex Police just under £4,000,000, the wider impact of the protesters efforts will be far greater than this.
