Now that one of the biggest companies in IT – Google – has admitted its not safe from cyber-criminals it’s time to admit that what the industry really needs is this: An all-time classic action hero posse to kick some cyber-crim’ butt.
Back in July last year Kaspersky cottoned on to this idea through teaming up with Jackie Chan to unleash some Hand of Death action on the Black Hats.
While I applaud Kaspersky’s vision, I don’t think they took the idea as far as it could go. Clearly, if even Jackie couldn't save Google, then the IT industry is going to have to do an old-school John Wayne-style big guns posse round-up.
It’s been known for some time that since 1940, the year Chuck Norris was born, roundhouse related deaths have increased 13,000 per cent, so obviously, Chuck’s first on the list.
Next, it’s the Governator. Whether in Terminator or John Matrix/Commando guise, anyone who can take on and beat a leather and chainmail-wearing, moustachioed, bogan 80’s accent-wielding super villain like Bennett, makes the list.
Speaking of Matrix, Keanu Reeves isn’t doing much these days; if anyone knows how to pound the zeroes and ones out the evil hordes of cyber criminals, it’s got to be Neo, right?
It may be an unorthodox choice, but who better than Resident Evil’s Milla Jovovich or Michelle Rodriguez to blow away a few zombies, eh?
The guys from Westworld are also pretty handy at shooting down those relentless ‘bots, too.
Anyways, if for whatever reason the posse can’t be rounded up, then there’s only one thing left for the world to do: unleash the Ballmer.
Who would you add to the posse?
