Preparing for the worst . . .

"The UK and US are to carry out "war game" cyber attacks on each other as part of a new joint defence against online criminals."
BBC News - 'Cyber attack war games' to be staged by UK and US
The first exercise, a staged attack on the financial sector, will take place later this year, Downing Street said.

The "unprecedented" arrangement between the two countries was announced as Prime Minister David Cameron held talks with US President Barack Obama.
"This is a real signal it's time to step up the efforts and to do more," Obama said.

"It's also about protecting people's data, people's finances - these attacks can have real consequences to people's prosperity."
What will follow? A great firewall to keep the bad guys out?
