According to CNN, a new U.S. federal report has found that the country is vulnerable to cyber attacks unless it strengthens its cyber-security force. The Partnership for Public Service, along with Booz Allen Hamilton, a management consulting company, researched government agencies and interviewed experts to find that there are not enough trained responders to deal with such attacks. President Obama called such a threat "one of the most serious economic and national security challenges" Americans face. He plans to create a new position of 'cyber-security coordinator' in order to address the security gap.
