Will a ‘cyber drill’ happening on Wall Street on Thursday and Friday, July 18th and 19th, lead to the collapse of our entire economic system and bring in a ‘New World Order’? Lots of people are very concerned, especially seeing that TPTB love to make their drills go live. Alex Jones discusses this false flag possiblity in the video below. The drill? To cripple the financial services networks around the entire country.
Computerworld – Starting at around 8.30 a.m. ET Thursday and continuing through Friday morning, dozens of major Wall Street firms will come under a series of massive cyberattacks aimed at crippling financial services networks around the country.
Fortunately for the firms — and their customers — the attacks will simply be a drill, codenamed Quantum Dawn 2. The effort is designed to test cyber incident response and coordination capabilities within the U.S. financial services sector.
The exercise, being coordinated by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), will involve about 50 organizations, including large financial firms, exchanges, the U.S. Treasury Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.
The cyber attack exercise comes at an important moment for the financial industry. In recent months, many of the nation’s largest banks, including Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and U.S. Bancorp have been pummeled by massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
Many believe the attacks are being orchestrated by a state-sponsored entity or entities. An Iran-based group calling itself “Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters” claimed responsibility for some of the early attacks. But security experts feel certain that others are involved as well.
