Obama’s Sensible Steps on Cybersecurity - Bloomberg

Obama’s Sensible Steps on Cybersecurity - Bloomberg: "In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama explained why he was issuing an executive order to protect critical U.S. networks from cyberthreats: “We cannot look back years from now and wonder why we did nothing in the face of real threats to our security and our economy.”
What he meant, but was perhaps too polite to say, was that in light of the ineptitude and cowardice Congress has shown on this matter, year after year, an executive order is probably the best we can hope for right now. As recent cyberattacks on the Federal Reserve, the Department of Energy, half a dozen major banks and a slew of media companies make clear, however, it won’t be adequate for very long."
