Canada should heed warnings of 'cyber Pearl Harbor,' security experts say
According to the Calgary Herald the escalating threat of cyber attacks requires a rethink in the government's security priorities, experts and opposition critics said Friday in the wake of a stark warning from the American defense secretary about potentially devastating Internet-based threats.
Leon Panetta warned his own nation Thursday that businesses needed to better protect their own systems, as does government, to prevent a "cyber Pearl Harbor" - a cataclysmic cyber attack that would take down large parts of North American networks and be more devastating than the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
