In anyone else concerned at the half a billion pounds...
..that the UK.gov has ear-marked for 'cyber warfare'? This seems like a ridiculously large figure earmarked to combat malicious computer and network attacks.
I'm not saying such activity doesn't take place, and I'm sure the firewalls, IDS, malware protection couple with detailled network and PC forensics are required. But HALF A BILLION. For computer security?!?
Someone at the DoD has been hood-winked on the latest threat buzzword, and is now panic buying.
Personally, I think work to defend gainst radicalised extremists with bombs strapped to their chest would be money better spent.
Oh - any a few planes to put on the empty decks of our warships would be nice too.
