World must prepare for 'Armageddon'-style cyber attack

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 | Tag Cloud

LONDON (Worthy News)-- The world must prepare for an "Armageddon"-style cyber attack, one of America's most influential regulators told the UK Telegraph.

Benjamin Lawsky, superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services, said it was a "matter of time" before there is a major cyber attack on the global financial system, and that the public needs to invest heavily in preventing disaster now, or pay an even higher price later on.

"They [cyber attackers] are breaking into everything. It is only a matter of time before something happens that is more systematic and problematic," he said.

"I worry that we are going to have some sort of major cyber-event in the financial system that’s going to cause us all to shudder".
