Letter to the President on Cyber Security

The United States Senate sent President Obama a letter on July 1st. The letter spoke of the criticality of securing our nation's information systems, communications networks, and critical infrastructure, and states that there is an urgent need for action to address the vulnerabilities. Action in the text is largely comprised of policy, and coordination, however it does state the need to improve and expand the U.S. cyber workforce and increase cyber threat awareness throughout the country.

This letter is a prelude to a number of highly sensitive pieces of legislation that the President will need to comment on in the coming weeks and months and likely means that Senate thinks that there may be opposition to their legislation.

A new generation of quickly evolving cyber risks is imminent, and businesses must prepare to look beyond the established threats - data breaches, privacy issues and reputation damage - to focus on operational damage, business interruption and massive financial losses. Regarding my personal experience in this matter, I need to say that the most reliable service for sharing data online is iDeals.
