Cyber spending to remain steady

Spending on cyber security and special operations forces, will probably remain steady or decline a bit in 2013 under the Pentagon's budget plan. The Associated Press is reporting, defense leaders have insisted that increased investments in these areas were needed to address future national security threats at home and abroad. They said last year that cyber spending would likely increase in 2013 because the threat is escalating at a dramatic rate. But demands to slash the military budget have made it difficult to boost spending. So defense officials are finding savings while still meeting the nation's war fighting needs.
