Protect ourselves against cyber attack
Share with others:
In the past several months, cyber-attacks have occurred against major American corporations: PNC, Citizens Bank, Jeep, Apple, etc. Some have been reported as originating in Iran and China. Now it is being reported that China has explored attacks against information systems that are part of American power grids. You know, electricity.
This past fall, the Cybersecurity Act was brought before Congress. It would have strengthened the country's defenses against these attacks. Yet Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey and other Republican senators voted against it and killed it, in that they would not let it come up for a vote.
What is going on here? Are these Republican fools not aiding and abetting terrorism? Do they even know what cyberspace is?
