For the past 10 years, the federal government has been desperate to pass all kinds of legislation around "cyber warfare", expanding their powers (shocking, they want to expand their powers). They consistently cite how we don't ask corporations to defend national borders so we shouldn't ask them to defend against cyber threats.

But here's the thing...government doesn't place soldiers inside of corporations to defend this country. And they don't ask corporations to facilitate the needs of soldiers. The military is responsible for securing the borders so that everything within the borders can be free from stifling federal government interference. If the federal government wants to defend the "perimeter" of the internet (ie the submarine communication cables once they come into the U.S.), then great. I'm all for it. But requiring anything from corporations is unacceptable.

Federal council to Trump: Cyber threats pose 'existential threat' to the nation

They are absolutely correct.

The National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) published a draft report addressed to President Trump this week that found cyber threats to critical infrastructure pose an “existential threat” to national security and recommended “bold action” in response.

The NIAC, which is made up of industry officials and those from state and local governments involved in critical infrastructure, including former National Security Agency Deputy Director Richard Ledgett, strongly urged Trump to take action to protect energy-, communications- and financial-critical infrastructure.
 
I think the US is very weak in cyber security

We used to lead the world in this area but no more

Nobody said they weren't correct. Nobody is arguing the nature of the threat. It's how they propose dealing with the threat which is the problem.

Exactly what proposals do you have a disagreement with?

The Pentagon has said the same about climate change and is preparing for it. Plenty of folk attempting to assert that's not correct.
 
Corporations are the soft underbelly of our cyber vulnerability. They need to harden up.
 
Trump has an unsecured server at his country club - yammers endlessly on an unsecured cell phone .......

what threat could there possibly be -

Clearly no more than the unsecured server in Hitlery Clinton’s house that was breached by China or her endless yammering on her unsecured Blackberry.

Bwahahaha! Is that why the F.B.I. is at war with Apple ever since they refused to hack the phone of the San Bernardino shooter?

Take the tinfoil hat off and stop getting your “info” from Hollywood movies.
