Obama Signs Presidential Order 20: Cyber Attacks

It’s interesting how we’d gone from fear of being physically attacked by another country to a fear of being virtually attacked by another country. However, thanks for technology, internet, and development of software – that’s where we are.

This new change to security will greatly impact how the United States can respond to security threats through the internet. According to Ellen Nakashima of the Washington Post:

 

“What it does, really for the first time, is it explicitly talks about how we will use cyber operations,” a senior administration official said. “Network defense is what you’re doing inside your own networks. . . . Cyber operations is stuff outside that space, and recognizing that you could be doing that for what might be called defensive purposes.”

Therefore, if any attempt to threaten the United States through the internet occurs, the hacker’s computer will automatically be shut-down by commanders.
The issue with this new change is that it may actually interfere with Congress views on cyber security. The other aspect that concerned many people is the fact that this new change to cyber security was so secretive or “private”.
