But let’s not argue semantics. War, skirmish, tomfoolery…call it what you may. Many experts will confess the US is unprepared for a major cyberattack. What is the government’s role in protecting these private networks? Should it have a role at all? Although some in the private sector are still debating these questions, the government has already moved in action. Last mon... (more)
