An anonymous reader writes with word that the outcome of the large-scale cyberattack simulation promised a few days ago isn’t too rosy. From the Help Net Security article: “During the simulated cyber attack that took place yesterday in Washington and was recorded by CNN, one thing became clear: the US are still not ready to deflect or mitigate such an attack to an extent that would not affect considerably the everyday life of its citizens. The ballroom of the Washington’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel was for this event transformed into the White House Situation Room, complete with three video screens displaying maps of the country, simulated updates and broadcasts by ‘GNN,’ an imaginary television network ‘covering’
the crisis.”
