US officials have been ordered to draw up procedures to reduce the country’s exposure to cybersecurity threats. President Obama warned that the country’s enemies were “seeking the ability to sabotage our power grid, our financial institutions and our air traffic control systems”. He added that Congress also needed to pass related laws. The House Intelligence Committee has said it now planned to revive its cyber threat information-sharing bill. The legislation – known as Cispa – had previously been attacked by privacy campaigners and the White House itself had threatened to veto the bill if passed in its original form.
