President Obama is Ready to Fight Cyber Hackers
President Obama has recently announced his plan to fight back against cyber hackers. His most recent announcement addresses the notion that we can achieve better results with attacking back hackers as a whole if companies getting hacked would quickly share information about their attacks to prevent future attacks of the same type.
A very long overdue legislation, firstly proposed in 2011, is now part of the top priority in the President’s agenda for 2015.
While lawmakers struggle to keep a balance between the corporate concerns about liability and consumer fears about privacy, the President is standing by a proposal to give law enforcement agencies more power when it comes to conducting investigations and prosecuting cybercrime in the hopes of discouraging the sale of spyware and theft of personal data.
