Heads Up! Massive worldwide cyber attacks, happening now. A reactor in the Ukraine may be included.

This is an interesting topic. 10 years ago who would have thought it would be "on the radar".....

I'm hearing more about this from people who dont prep vs. those who do. That is what is getting my attention vs. the usual doomsday reactions to the news of the week. (Thanks Alex Jones for selling crazy..)

Today a hospital registrar, tomorrow who knows. From the limited chatter I've heard from tech guys even an electrical grid down situation is a possibility. Perhaps only days, weeks..perhaps months...but still something that is not unbelievable. What if finances are affected? Logistics? The largest shipping fleet was interrupted last week from the latest global cyber attack...

An interesting topic for sure...where to start...and how would it even change current preparations?

Not exactly a cyber attack, but someone cut 2 fiber optic cables and took down the phones, ATMs even some airports in eastern Canada. I would love to see a detailed report. It blows me away how fragile and interconnected we are today.

LOTSSSSSSSS of companies are hacked. Some don’t know it and the others keep it quite as it’s a major embarrassment and threat to revenue streams or stock values or in the case of government, confidence.

Don’t wish to simply throw a number out there I can’t prove but boy, based on my small world of detailed knowledge and hands on experience I would say the real incidents are at least fifty times or more and I went low!
