FedScoop: White House Bares Strategy vs. Cyber Attacks to Congress

WhiteHouseThe White House has presented its strategic plan meant to deter cyber attacks to Congress, FedScoop reported Friday.

Greg Otto writes the Obama administration seeks to stop cyber attacks that impact public health, economic security and national security through “cost imposition,” legal actions and military force.

“Our targeted use of these instruments is intended to create uncertainty in adversaries’ minds about the effectiveness of any malicious cyber activities and to increase the costs and consequences that adversaries face as a result of their actions,” the strategy document stated.

The Obama administration plans to cushion the weak areas in both the public and private sector since it believes it is impossible to protect the entire U.S. cyber infrastructure, according to the report.
