Government Ill Prepared for Cyber Terrorism

According to 90% of the Dutch computer and internet experts, the Dutch government is failing in fighting national and international cyber criminality. This is a conclusion of a study by DNU exhibition, which organizes the computer fair Infosecurity. The security of municipal services, police and medical files is considered particularly weak. It is possible that the Municipality of Almere was hit by a digital terror attack at the beginning of October. All e-mails of 2 October were lost. It took six days until the system was functioning normally again.
