judgecorp writes: The British Ministry of Defence says the UK should invest 20 percent of its turnover (maybe £100 billion) protecting the nation's data — because a cyber attack on military targets could bring down the British Government. This could all be hype: te MoD's head of information security suggested that an online attack might cause a military operation to fail, which could then bring about vote of no confidence in the government. The call for budget will fall on deaf ears in a recession — and the MoD may well be basing its ideas on a hyped idea of the dangers.
