YEAH, BUT DO YOU TRUST HIM WITH THAT?

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is calling digital security a top priority, whether it's guarding the computer systems that keep the lights on in the city and direct airliners to the right runway or those protecting customers who pay their bills online.

To oversee an enhanced security system for the nation's computer networks, Obama is creating a "cyber czar" as part of a long-awaited plan stemming from a review he ordered shortly after taking office.

On Friday, Obama is expected to lay out broad goals for dealing with cyber threats while depicting the U.S. as a digital nation that needs to provide the education required to keep pace with technology and attract and retain a cyber-savvy work force. He also is expected to call for a new education campaign to raise public awareness of the challenges and threats related to cyber security.

  • See, here's the thing. How about people be responsible for themselves. Get online at your own risk. Good grief. I don't need a babysitter.

  • Can't wait to see the miracle person he picks for this spot.

    How in the heck is one person going to watch over all of our cybercrap. That includes all bussinesses who use internet as well as our electric grid

    This is just another thing that will aid them so they can get into our medical records easier. LOL

  • You would be able to say so much more Grace perhaps if you did actually put your thoughts in a journal. Folks could come there and get all sorts of vital information from your site and then you wouldn't have to bother with those pesky Anons you don't care much for.

    You'd probably be good at it, just a thought.
