    Cybersecurity bills almost always (near universally) sacrifice the liberty of all for the security of a few.

    I just hope this is not just being used as an excuse to consolidate more regulatory power over the internet.

    With all of our advanced weapons and our need to 'project American strength' our greatest threat comes from a attack we can't see.
    We are supposed to trust that ten hundreds.. thousands..? of people in places like homeland security in charge of making sure we aren't being attacked aren't diddling around on some video game, facebook or other various social media with addictions to persons they've been watching and using to try to hide their bad behavior, high on their ability to snoop and cyber attack with impunity are actually doing their job?
    Who watches over these people? I doubt anyone does. As long as they can hand in a report about Abu someone said on facebook Monday.. whatever they're good.

    I think these snooping jobs will eventually be given to machines so just interpretation of data, creating reports..no hobbies, no psycho stalker. paradise :) !
    oh but there would be problems with that too. I keep having visions of terminator. yes, I was a teenager in the 80's

    Rather than our nation's security being reliant on clarity coming out of feeding online addictions in homeland security that guarantee to invade our privacy but cannot give the same guarantee to protect the nation or could even bring on the terminator, couldn't we just make this country's infrastructure less integrated and go 'the way of the strong' like in Estonia and Georgia?

    Local police grapple with response to cybercrimes
    Apr 13,`13 WASHINGTON (AP) -- If a purse with $900 is stolen, the victim probably would call the police. If a computer hacker steals $900 from that same person's bank account, what then? Call the police? Could they even help?

    I have an idea stop using computers and put everything sensitive or financial into paper files or on closed internal options set apart from the internet. If cybercriminals couldn't hack anything and say banks used passbooks and made people come in to do business there would be no more issues.

    Second use cash not any other options unless just like cash, debit gift cards and reloadable debit cards with a fixed financial limit.

    Do the same for every other option that is sensitive you can't hack a power grid if its key points are all manual, computers should be to assist and even then again internal closed systems.

    I thought I would repost this

    Denial of Service (DoS) attacks can be accomplished with only one computer, and in a multitude of ways. The goal of a DoS attack is to prevent the intended individual users from utilizing a certain networked resource. A variety of techniques are available to exploit the underlying Internet communication architecture and prevent legitimate use of networks. Most Dos attacks flood the target network with bogus traffic or overwhelm a target computer with bogus requests preventing the legitimate use of either resource

    and add something else

    Its about people and trust which is why their jobs exist and why they're going to cut 90% of their administrators and give those jobs to machines.

    Chase Bank Customers Targeted by Massive Phishing Attack
    August 27, 2014 — A new trend in cyber attacks may be unfolding: the "smash and grab" campaign. One such attack recently targeted a massive number of JPMorgan Chase customers on August 19. While most phishing perpetrators attempt to disguise their efforts and extend the shelf life of their attacks, this exploit was fearless – disregarding stealth measures and launching a multi-pronged attack that wasn't concerned about the threat of detection.
