What can go wrong in computer networks?
Nowadays, computer networks form part of critical infrastructure all around us. They are expected to operate flawlessly, providing the speed and availability we expect.
However, as with all electronic equipment, many things in the network infrastructure can go wrong. In addition, networks and networked devices can be a target of cyber attacks.
