"I believe the government, across all levels, is too complacent when it comes to protecting their digital assets and this needs to change,”
Some would suggest that presently, across all levels, they are not worth protecting and that any money to be spent, would be better spent, changing them.
Is the "protection" plan going to be a dumb one akin to a plan that would think to bury them deep underground in a bunker, out of sight and for secret personal Use and Abuse or simply to deny more and more freedom of/to information and digital requests.
That would surely be a wanton profligate waste rendering a Global Sign of the State of the National Intelligence Estimate.
"‘Task force aims to improve US cybersecurity’" ........ Methinks that digital securuty is a dodgy issue to get right because it is so easy to fall victim and casualty to friendly fire.
Hell though, should the White House going Pink with Hillary enthroned and in charge of Bill's Laundry Bills, [On your knees, boy. Yes Ma'am, Mrs President. Your wish is my Command] and all bets are wild and off.
Has anyone ever considered that the World just follows AAAA Script? Have you ever thought that it is more a junk novel/comic book rather than a literary masterpiece/piece de la resistance/tour de force? Do you never think about who would think to think to write such a tome and for whom and what it would be worth on the Open Market?
Although what IT would be worth, and what it would actually cost, bear absolutely no relationship to each other, which would make it a very attractive proposition and XXXXstreamly easy to sell...... as in essence it would be both priceless and cost nothing Generating as IT does ..... Everything.
