From Britain, there is information that a new protection system will be introduced at the facilities of the country's atomic industry. The defense system is also awaiting military installations related to the nuclear potential of the United Kingdom. According to the publication The TimesFirst and foremost, improvement will concern cybersecurity issues, since recently there has been an increase in the number of threats to penetration into computer networks of these objects by hackers.


Britain is urgently upgrading its nuclear shield's cyber defense system


The British newspaper writes that the improvement of the protection system of nuclear facilities and similar military facilities is aimed at countering "rogue states" and hackers exploited by the so-called "Islamic state". About who London means by "rogue states", the material is not reported.

Last year, representatives of the British Ministry of Defense reported on the need to address an urgent increase in the level of cybersecurity in relation to the country's nuclear potential. It was then about cyber defense underwater fleet The United Kingdom, which is armed with Trident ballistic missiles. Specialists have discovered many vulnerabilities in the software that allows the exploitation of nuclear potential.

Today, the issues of improving cybersecurity at nuclear sites in Britain are also associated with messages coming from Belgium. Recall that the Belgian secret services said that the militants associated with LIH were preparing terrorist attacks on local nuclear power plants.

    Urgently lie down on the ground, shut off the reactor, turn off all communications and do not breathe ... yes, lie down on the ground at night so that no one can see where.

        The adversaries have begun to fuss, it will not help anymore, you will lose anyway, because your goals and aspirations, to put it mildly, are not for the truth.

    The smartest step would be to dispose of all British nuclear gadgets and stop playing the superpower. The empire has long been blown away.

    It seems that as the Trident system is not the property of Her Majesty and as if the improvement of cybersecurity on their own is a gross violation of licenses

    I remembered the Strugatsky :)) Top Secret. Burn before reading.
    Is everything so good on the island that they come up with threats for themselves and spend money enthusiastically on this? There was no money for the catapult for the aircraft carrier, as a result, they buy the most flawed version of a mildly nontrivial aircraft. To modernize the Challengers too. And there is garbage from to, to which you can only get by sitting at a computer in the most pl money will allocate. Oh well, we’re better, and the woman with the cart, and the wolves are full.

    "In the English Channel, the depths of gloomy
    Everywhere you look
    Crawl in diving suits

    These tasks are simple:

    I’m under the table from this "empire" ... Their underwater strategists, p.o. institutes, go to their home, and they disconnect computer systems from a non-existent Internet ... The Russian Orthodox did not take the girls ...
