If two countries waged cyber war on each another, here’s what to expect

  Imagine you woke up to discover a massive cyber attack on your country.

The transport system isn’t working, traffic lights are blank, immigration is in chaos and all tax records have disappeared. The internet has been reduced to an error message and daily life as you know it has halted.
