[...] We already have rules so telecoms operators stay secure: to ensure they take the right measures and notify any significant incidents.
Trond Johannessen
Telecom operators being secure is another illusion. Thieves like to drive on the freeway with the stolen goods, or to quickly get to destinations for committing a digital violation of property. Telecom operators must remain in service for the heist to succeed, although we can imagine that the day a physical attack on Europe is launched, the telecom operators will be taken out in a way that will negate the capacity of "rules" to protect the networks and systems that serve us in our daily lives in the Information Society. I think this is another false assumption security that is highly unrealistic for reasons I have tried to state above.
