ROGERS OUTAGE COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED
On Friday, July 8th, early morning (~05:00 EDT), “Rogers Communications” infrastructure Canada-wide went down and according to their CEO, a network system failure following a maintenance update in their core network caused some of their routers to malfunction. As of Monday, July 11th, morning, service was still unavailable to many subscribers. Moreover, many businesses are scrambling to figure out how to recover from a lost day in productivity, business loss and critical of all, the population and the country’s safety!
According to CyVault™’s CTO, Mr. Youssef Jad, “this operational disaster could have been avoided”.

Mr. Youssef Jad contends that “If we can’t protect our nations critical infrastructure from attacks, targeted or not, then we are opening doors to a more advanced threats, like state-sponsored.” And adds “We might just have given the right clues to our adversaries on how to cripple the nation! We have to be ready and resilient to protect our country!”.
