Some examples are Air Traffic Control, Military Command and Control (C2), Military Micro-grids, industrial control systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA). There are some Countries that currently creating their own digital currencies such as China.

Consequently, these assets need to be kept safe which requires a lot of testing of the systems and documents before they go on line. What is the value of a diploma if they can be forged or hacked? How can the government issue identification papers if the systems that store these assets can be hacked?
