cyber terrorism

In the past, I've refrained from blogging about cyber-terrorism for reasons of national security. Clearly the cat is out of the bag now, with what looks to be a significant attack from North Korea.

The NSA, Homeland Security, White House, State Department, the Treasury Department, NASDAQ and NYSE websites were all hit last weekend.

It's inconceivable to me that protective measures haven't been boosted at every step along the way of America's digital infrastructure. Of course, that does require a certain amount of forward thinking, a skill-set governments lack.

The governments of Clinton and Bush pretty much sucked on cyber terrorism. If Obama can secure America's vital online assets, it will be a huge and important achievement and I will praise him for it.
