Cyber Threat to Games

Cyber Threat
David Blunkett, the former Home Secretary, will warn that the London 2012 Olympic Games are at risk of a "cyber attack".

Blunkett will give the warning during his opening address to the Infosec annual conference at Olympia this Tuesday, and will go on to say that terrorists could hack into computer and communications systems causing a "complete meltdown".

He wants a co-ordinated approach between government, security experts and business to mitigate the threat.

The threat of a cyber attack is indeed very real. However, that threat exists and will continue to exist, with or without the London Olympics.
