This contribution develops a worst case scenario of a synchronized assault on strategic energy and information infrastructure in Sweden. It highlights the need to consider “unthinkable” scenarios in contingency planning to minimize the damage a major comprehensive disruption could cause. The challenge consists in having to handle the simultaneous impact of critical infrastructure disruptions while ensuring the effective flow of information between the state and society. The extreme scenario is developed on the basis of real incidents that have affected Sweden in the past few years.
