Security expert: U.S. would lose cyber war.
The U.S. government, if confronted in a cyber war today, would not come out on top, a former U.S. director of national intelligence said Tuesday. "If the nation went to war today, in a cyber war, we would lose," Mike McConnell told a U.S. Senate committee. "We're the most vulnerable. We're the most connected. We have the most to lose."
McConnell, director of national intelligence from 2007 to 2009, predicted that the U.S. government would eventually get heavily involved in protecting cyber security and in regulating private approaches to cyber security. Testifying before the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, McConnell also predicted that the U.S. would make little improvements in its cyber security before a "catastrophic" attack will cause the government to get involved.
