With many years experience in delivering effective IT strategy, I think that every major organization must push cyber-attacks up the risk register. Neal Pollard’s article cites that the US government has long been considering a ‘Cyber Pearl Harbour‘.

With global growth recovering strongly from the financial crash of 2008, political risks must increasingly factor into strategic decisions. Unfortunately, the Eurozone looks vulnerable to damaging fallout from political risk – look at the record on the Ukraine, sanctions and Russia’s fast-stepping on energy in the Mediterranean.

Given experience defending the Euro, I wonder how prepared Europe is against cyber-warfare? Also should Europe rely on NATO, where after the US, Turkey has the largest army?

Thoughts?
