Default 'A cyber-attack could stop the country'

It sounds as if it could be nasty! This article is from BBC Business News:

'A cyber-attack could stop the country' - BBC News
Superfast 5G mobile broadband could power smart cities and the internet of things, (IoT) but as more devices get connected, telecoms and security experts are warning that cyber-attacks could increase in number and severity.

Our homes and cities are getting "smarter" - thermostats, video doorbells, sprinkler systems, street lights, traffic cameras, cars. all connected to the internet, collecting and transmitting useful data.

And 5G superfast mobile is seen as a catalyst that will light up this massive network...

... But experts are queuing up to issue stark warnings about security.
