‘The Big Hack’ Has New York Snarled in Cyber Risk

Bruce Schneier steers us to an unnerving “glimpse” into the near future in which a fancied cyberattack leaves New York City in chaos, “including hacking of cars, the water system, hospitals, elevators, and the power grid.

“Although it is definitely a movie-plot attack,” Schneier muses, “all the individual pieces are plausible and will certainly happen individually and separately.” The doomsday article, entitled “The Big Hack,” is from New York Magazine and makes for chilling reading. May it prove overdone, but only if we’re all alert to such a dire possibility.
