Cyberattacks – prevention by Governments

Four interesting articles about preventing cyberattacks. The first is about creating a real-scale cyberattack to see how the different targets would react and their level of vulnerability.
“International cyberattack drill tests nations’ responses ” (10 April 2008),1000000189,39383325,00.htm

The second is about the response to an attack, i.e. an early-warning system, a bit like for tsunamis in the pacific?
“US plans cyberattack early-warning system” (video- 10 April 2008),1000000189,39383335,00.htm

With the European COmmission (EU) urging Europe to strengthen its cyber defences “Commission eyes common cyber defences ” (9 April 2008)

and finally NATO! “NATO agrees common approach to cyber defence” (4 April 2008)
“Nato creates cyber-defence command” (9 April 2008),1000000189,39382597,00.htm, with the irony of creating a centre in Estonia! (16 May 2008)
