Wesley Clark: cyberattacks must be stopped
Friday - 6/25/2010, 8:53am EDT
- A former NATO commander believes that cyber attacks can be prevented, and that the severity can and must be stopped. General Wesley Clark told an audience of cyber specialists at the National Press Club that the U.S. has the assets to stop the attacks. Clark says thousands of cyber attacks have been launched against the Departments of Defense, State, Treasury and Commerce, and against the electric grid and other critical infrastructure. DefPro.com reports Clark is urging the adoption of a new kind of protective technology for computers known as InZero. He also happens to chair the advisory board of InZero Systems, based in Herndon, Virginia.

- Twitter has settled charges with federal regulators that it put the privacy of its users at risk by failing to protect them from data security lapses last year.
