Study warns US must develop cyber intelligence
Sunday, September 11, 2011
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new study warns that the U.S. must develop cyber intelligence as a new and better coordinated government discipline that can predict and deter computer-related threats.
The report by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance says the dramatic expansion of sophisticated cyber-attacks has moved beyond acceptable losses for government and businesses that simply threaten finances or intellectual property.
The report comes amid growing worries that the U.S. is not prepared for a major cyberattack, even as hackers, criminals and nation states continue to probe and infiltrate government and business networks millions of times a day.
