United States Cyber Security in the 21st Century
AbstractHighly sophisticated computer attacks are on the rise. Google, United States defense firms, and state governments are just a few of the many organizations to be attacked recently. These attacks often lead to valuable information being stolen and networks being damaged. Many of these attacks are traced back to China, a rising world power with even faster rising cyber capabilities. The damage done to the U.S. as well as the value of the stolen information for China is truly mind boggling. In order to protect private and governmental organizations and maintain its military supremacy it currently enjoys, the United States must greatly expand U.S. Cyber Command’s power.
