The U.S. National Security Council has an interesting document up on the White House Website about the The Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI). It’s certainly an impressive plan for addressing many of the cybersecurity issues facing the U.S. government, but is it a plan that the government can successfully implement?
The government hasn’t won the war on drugs, addressed the nationwide education problem, or many of the other major issues facing the U.S. So how can the government possibly think it can solve the country’s computer security problems? While some say that something is better than nothing, is “better than nothing” really going to make a difference?
