Potential For Digital Pearl Harbor Is Real

A former FBI "cyberexpert" says that the potential for a digital Pearl Harbor is real. Thankfully this guy is now working for a company that can help save us all! roll eyes (sarcastic)

One of the challenges of highlighting this threat with the general public is they often don't see the physical ramifications of these types of attacks. When data is exfiltrated, it's gone but it's also still physically there. The adversary has it but when you open up your folders you see it there, so it doesn't seem real. When people talk about a "digital Pearl Harbor" they are talking about physical ramifications that are really going to get people's attention.
