White House Preparing Executive Order As A Stand-In For CISPA
This isn't a huge surprise -- and last month we even discussed the possibility, but it sounds as though the White House has decided that, with
the failure of Congress to pass a comprehensive cybersecurity bill (CISPA passed in the House, but the rather different Cybersecurity Act failed in
the Senate), it is going to issue some sort of executive order to deal with "cybersecurity issues."
White House drafting standards to guard U.S. against cyberattack, officials say
The White House has drafted a preliminary executive order aimed at strengthening the nation’s computer systems against attack, an effort to
begin to accomplish through fiat what could not be achieved through Congress.
The draft order, whose contours are being debated, would create voluntary standards to guide companies in guarding themselves against cyberattacks,
according to administration officials. It would also establish a special council made up of key government agencies to identify threats that could
compromise critical sectors.
White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said the administration was not going to discuss details of internal deliberations, “but an Executive Order
is among the things we’re considering to fulfill the president’s direction to us to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation
against today’s cyberthreats.”
So is this how they are going to take away peoples rights? Through an executive order? Other cybersecurity laws, such as SOPA, PIPA and CISPA have
failed to get through, so just by pass all of that and pass an executive order. Completely disgusting, but I really don't see anyone making a stink
over this....since Romney supports cybersecurity legislation.
Also, this coming to light, with the "supposed" attack on DNS provider GoDaddy by the "security leader of anonymous" screams false flag.
