What would happen if terrorists or an enemy nation got their hands on digital weapons of mass disruption — like Stuxnet, Flame, or the newly reported Gauss — and used them to attack America? How would it impact our economy, our banking system, our transportation system? How would IT organizations respond? Could we, in fact, defend ourselves?
Those were questions I recently set out to answer. Over the course of three months, working with The Economist, I put together a comprehensive simulation of such an attack.
