SPOOKS IN THE MACHINE: How the Pentagon Should Fight Cyber Spies
WASHINGTON, D.C-The Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) today released a report by Noah Shachtman examining the Pentagon's approach to combatting cyber attacks. Shachtman, a contributing editor at Wired magazine and the editor of its award-winning national security blog, "Danger Room," assesses the dangers of operating on an open network, the pressing threat of cyber espionage and the Pentagon's current solutions to the problem.
"Clearly, there needs to be a rather serious re-evaluation of military information assurance," writes Shachtman. "The Pentagon needs to do a better job of figuring out theoretical risks from actual dangers; secret drone feeds can't be left open while blogs are placed off-limits."
