John O'Sullivan and his CSIRO team developed wi-fi in 1992. Wi-fi is a way of getting broadband internet to a device using wireless transmitters and radio signals. Once a transmitter receives data from the internet, it converts that data into a radio signal that can be received and read by wi-fi enabled devices. Information is then exchanged between the transmitter and the device.

A few weeks ago, the British National Health Service was hit by a widespread and devastating cyber attack. This BBC documentary tells the inside story of one of the most challenging days in the history of the NHS. On the morning of May 12 the attack started. Appointment systems, pathology labs, X-rays and even CT scanners were infected - putting not just data but patients’ lives at risk. It became clear that all the data on an infected machine was now scrambled and only the hackers could unscramble it - but for a price. And if nothing was paid within a week, the hackers threatened to destroy all the data - forever.
