Preventative Model Train Projects
The US Military's Model Train Town Prevents Cyber Attacks

{SummaryTitle}

In works with Sans Institute, the US Military has developed an impressively realistic model train town. Although this train town is truly the deepest fantasy of every model train hobbiest, its true purpose is to simulate and prevent cyber terrorism and attacks.

The realism of the train town does not come from its aesthetic qualities, but rather the working systems that it is hooked up to. The tiny train town has a fully functional electrical grid, banking system, transportation system and even includes WiFi.

Everything in this world is or is becoming digitally linked and therefore needs to be protected. Remember the fear of the Y2K Bug? Hopefully this train town will help prevent something similar from happening. I mean, what would we all do in a world without our precious internet?
