    US announces new Agency to make Americans even more safe.

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s plan to create a new agency to combat hackers may improve information sharing between government and industry, although it adds to a security bureaucracy that some have warned has already grown unwieldy.

    The Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center announced Tuesday comes in response to increasingly damaging online attacks against U.S. banks, retailers and other industries — including an attack last year on Sony Corp.’s Hollywood studio.

    State and non-state actors, terrorists, hackers and criminals are probing our networks every day seeking to steal, to spy, to manipulate and to destroy” U.S. computer networks. said Lisa Monaco, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism. “Currently, no single government entity is responsible for producing a coordinated cyber threat assessment.”

    U.S. companies have been clamoring for a more aggressive response to cyber-attacks on companies by China, Iran, North Korea and other nation states. Financial institutions, including JPMorgan Chase & Co., have repeatedly asked U.S. officials to do more to halt the attacks, rather than expect banks just to fight them off.

    Advocates for smaller government have said the growing bureaucracy has led to an uncoordinated amalgam of agencies and initiatives and has hampered cybersecurity efforts.

    A unit to integrate cyber-intelligence already exists within the Department of Homeland Security, called the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center. The U.S. Cyber Command operates under the Pentagon and defends military networks as well as preparing potential counteroffensive moves.

    “If you put another layer into this area, you’re creating some problems,” Shawn Henry, president of the cybersecurity company CrowdStrike Services, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “Quite frankly, there are multiple centers now where there’s a lot of coordination happening across the entire U.S. intelligence community,” he said. “The real key here is to see exactly how this is to be utilized, and what the White House’s goal is.”

    The new center will coordinate efforts and perform a function that no other agency is currently performing, Ms. Monaco said. “This is filling a critical gap,” she said in a speech Tuesday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington.

    Ms. Monaco disputed claims that the new center is redundant, saying it will serve to provide valuable data to intelligence and law enforcement centers that carry out operations. The agency fills a gap in providing “critical, rapid, coordinated intelligence to feed those operational centers,” she said. “It’s not duplicative at all.”

    It's funny when Americans say this, especially when they've never experienced living under the waking nightmare of EU suzerainty!

    the greatest threat at the moment is germanys intransigence and europes propensity for self destruction.



    ..... and when europe crumbles again thanks to the german led euro fiasco and the unstoppable rise of leftist/trotskyist political parties in southern europe it will be the good old usa that has to come to our rescue again.

    the world needs a strong america that is not afraid to wield its power.

    What the world needs is a Strong American Public who is not affraid to wield its power rather being divided and conquered. It needs to be the eagle and not the right or left wing.

    Prepare for Cyber Armageddon | RealClearDefense

    Cyber Armageddon - IEEE Spectrum

    Cyber this, cyber that - it's just another buzz word and another quasi-military organisation to make a badly-acted series about on HBO, and maybe a movie glorifying American military and economic prowess.

    Jobs for the boys. I think we should trump them by making a Royal Space Force.

    we are all figments of our own imagination.

    WW3 with China could be very profitable; but let's take the ragheads out first. Why anyone thought it was a good idea to let them actually control the oil is a mystery. Send them back to their tents with their stone age attitudes.
