back to article UK.gov cautious on EU cyberwar effort

Security chiefs are considering joining an EU wargame to help guard critical internet infrastructure against attacks from enemy states or criminals, but Whitehall officials are concerned other members of the bloc are not ready. A recently-circulated Brussels strategy paper called for a European cyberwar exercise by the end of …

A Strange Game to be Playing though ..... AIMeltdown rather than AIRenaissance.

.... Who is Responsible for the Certifiable Madness?

"Currently, it would seem the UK government believes it is ready for digital disaster with or without help from its European friends."

Quite so. Its present continuing collapse is most impressive.

ahead of whom?

*** Ability to respond to incidents currently varies widely across Europe, and the UK is well ahead of the game," the Cabinet Office said. ***

This is the same being "ahead of the game" type of competence that make people discover after the fact that they cannot communicate with people from other branches in the same city? Never mind any need to communicate with people from different parts of the country or better still - key stakeholders in other countries. Who exactly are we ahead of? And what is this "being ahead of" defined as? Spin, spin and spin again.

What I find really amazing is the way we in the UK are treated as idiots over and over again by our ***intellectually superior overlords***. We are indeed behaving as an intrinsically stupid people considering that we have continued to let these geniuses run our country year after year...

Gotta Get To You First / A Question Of Time, Orange

Good scenario: credited by the banks;

Bad scenario: credited by the persons;

Case a) credit from public investors;

Case b) credit from the criminal (and you know that);

Both ways are similar, but are differenciated by the grade of responsibility:

a) responsible to the tax-payers (and you know that);

b) responsible to the "criminal", e.g. steady group shown at the market as "persons".

Task a) define the moderating structure of the flow during the meltdown in legal operations;

Task b) define the supporting/opposing forces.

Paris, because it's the capital of France.

"Task a) define the moderating structure of the flow during the meltdown in legal operations;" .... That will invariably be a Mixed Coalition of Regrouping and Realigning ESPecial Forces Talents for Virtual Ascension and Assumption of Proxy Command and SCADA Control, Conversant and Skilled in Employment and Enjoyment of Mutually Beneficial Legal and Non-Legal Fields...... for Saints and Sinners, Bishops and Hookers are also Valid XXXXStream Fields requiring Revised Novel Input and thus cannot be Ignored or Excluded and Rejected by any MainStreamed Meme.

"Task b) define the supporting/opposing forces." .... Supporting forces, Sublime and Untouchable. Opposing forces, Misguided and Ineffectual.

External is good, but what about internal?

OK, the threat is perceived to be external. It seems to be a governing premise.

But (ok BUT!) it assumes a single OS with no diversity. Of all the hacks, crashes and flops that affected UK institutions (including NHS) what would have happened if it used 80%, 10%, 10% of different kit with different OSs? (eg: 80% PC & Windows, 10% Mac, 10% 'nix)

How does one spread the load to ensure continuity of service surviving worst case or disaster scenarios?

Me, my department, my party whenever things go well.

Someone or something else otherwise.

For Real, IT's The Trigger

Re: "Supporting forces, Sublime and Untouchable. Opposing forces, Misguided and Ineffectual" -

IT's Quite Sublimely so, amfM, and sometimes, aren't there the ways of painting the forces white or black, by media presently or by actions which are to be discussed in public some 50 yrs later?

"a Mixed Coalition of Regrouping and Realigning ESPecial Forces Talents for Virtual Ascension and Assumption" -

And, is there any hope that the the process of adoptation to the new terrain by the Talents will Swim along a Cool Pool rather than walk through the series of new Hot Spots?

+ yes, funny how a Processing Unit finds if IT needs to implement the Running Appliance function "pray/fcuk" to (The) "Bishop"/"Hooker" objects [and not to get confused with], or just let them alone. I mean, if there is a function, it should be implemented somehow. If there is no realisation of the function, and it's pre-defined, then an Advanced Intelligence will probably Render ones by default [re Imagine and It's True]... if the Initial Settings weren't changed yet to any Custom/Pesonal Mode... just to avoid the disturbing popping up a big System warning balloon when sensibly much is in the Game, Play and at Stake, presently and always.

PS when's the Wake-Up Call, in decimals? Just not seen clearly, also must the result be doubled or is IT always presently a little more Time ahead than presently as the Trigger goes round, and round, and round?

Great but, one question

Will British officials now stop posting highly sensitive information on unencrypted CD ROMs and leaving their unlocked laptops full of state secrets on commuter trains?

This whole thing strikes me as spin, spin and more spin and a bit case of putting the cart before the horse!

What Better Beta Time than Now to Communise and Capitalise the Future with AIdDreams Virtualised?

When IT is a little ahead of Time, does it always have the Trigger CodeXXXX which Leads Reality, with Controls Virtually. And is Surely at ITs Most Valuable when Freely Shared for Positively Reinforcing Mutual Benefit amongst True Friends and Lovers for a Global Reach and Universal Dominion....... Sublime Singularity?

David @ "officials now stop" -

may it seem to be said in a kind of a North-American pronunciation (-:

It's really an inacceptable behaviour for the Intelligence blue collars to leave unencrypted data to journalists in some cases.

But... take a walk. The horse is dead. And that's the spin.

amamfromMars, how very not HyperRadioProActive IT is - "to Communise and Capitalise", and, right you are, this is shit. Kind of motto out...

"Benefit amongst True Friends and Lovers for a "... - I'll probably need assistance in decyphering (-: attempts fail. Also that the singularity is really a wide-spread event in this dimension, as I see on the Reg. Presently, the situation reminds the one of those about a black cat in a black room, doesn't it?

Such is the thing about UK.gov cautious on EU cyberwar effort, that's some article, thanks.
