Hey u/axolotl_peyotl the "cyber pandemic" as Klaus Schwab calls it seems to be something many of us are keeping an eye on as the the next big thing after COVID.

Background for those who don't know:

Remember the Event 201 simulation of a flu pandemic just before COVID broke out? Now this simulation on cyber-attacks on supply chains (like oil pipelines) organized by... World Economic Forum


Klaus Schwab:


We all know... but pay insufficient attention... to the frightening scenario of a comprehensive cyber attack, which would bring to a complete halt to the power supply, transportation (oil pipelines?), hospitals.... The COVID-19 crisis would be seen as a small disturbance in comparison to a major cyber attack... A CYBER PANDEMIC

Watch out for MSM hyping up digital vulnerabilities and cyber attacks.
