The article discusses the potential for a large-scale national cyber attack on critical infrastructure, emphasizing the vulnerability of medical technology and the NHS to such threats due to outdated security measures. It highlights Jake Moore, a global cybersecurity advisor, who details how a collective attack could have catastrophic consequences across various sectors, including hospitals, police stations, and the financial system. Despite this, Moore explains that life-saving equipment and critical services have safeguards like offline operation and alternative communication networks to mitigate the impact.
