The tech industry is unprepared for “the Big One,” a catastrophic cyber-attack “that will rumble society to its core.”

“World Without Mind: The Existential Threat of Big Tech” is a new book by Franklin Foer, former editor of the New Republic, now with the Atlantic. Foer says:

“[T]he Big One, the inevitable mega-hack that will rumble society to its core[,] … might be an exposed cache of intimate information that disrupts marital relations en masse … It might disrupt our financial system, so that fortunes disappear in an unrecoverable flash. Or it might trigger an actual explosion of infrastructure that kills.”
