Pentagon to Expand Cyber Force

And it's on!

Pentagon to Drastically Expand Cyber Force

As Adam B. Lowther, a Research Professor at the Air Force Research Institute and co-author with Panayotis A Yannakogeorgos of "Conflict and Cooperation in Cyberspace: The Challenge to National Security," to be published by Auerbach in August 2013, said, "With governments and societies believing that cyber attack is something less than an act of war, it should come as no surprise that President Obama is preparing for what may be the opening salvo in America's next confrontation. In fact, it may be the United States that attacks first. Given the cyber vulnerabilities of American society, preemption may be the only option."
