"Wealthy nations face a high and fast-growing threat of cyberattacks"

Nonsense.

Every cyberattack is a design failure or operator malfunction. If the cyberattackers are so smart how dumb are the ever so powerful custodians of cyber-infrastructure?

Sounds like there's a whole bunch of dummies leading a whole bunch of dummies telling everyone else they're way too smart to be hacked. Another inside job? Completely inexcusable and a 100% preventable failure.

KC is right. I've worked far too many places where IT security is a joke. In most cases it's directly related to lack of funding creating serious hardware and personnel shortages.
