President Obama has his mind on security when talking about the cyber threat.
It is right and proper that the whole issue of cyber security be brought front and centre, irrespective of political considerations. The reason for this is that the communications infrastructure, of which the Internet is the absolute central component, underlies our way of life in the 21st century.
President Obama has his mind on the elections when talking about the cyber threat.
The bottom line is that the government needs to move swiftly to maintain credibility - especially in an election year.
Earlier in 2011 the White House revealed language on new legislation directing private industries to improve computer security voluntarily, and have those standards reviewed by the Department of Homeland Security. The government clearly has plenty of work to do on preventing insider attacks. Our view is that it is about time the White House has caught up on ideas and technology that many corporate clients have known about for several years.
