Obama pushes cybersecurity legislation
Obama talks with CEOs about cybersecurity bill
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama met with more than a dozen corporate chief executives to seek their support for stalled cybersecurity legislation amid increasing evidence that government agencies, businesses and individuals are vulnerable to computer network break-ins.
The closed-door session Wednesday at the White House came a day after the nation’s top intelligence officials warned in a Senate hearing that cyberattacks and digital spying have eclipsed terrorism as the top threat to national security. They said the chance of a major attack is remote in the near term, but digital thefts of intellectual property are putting U.S. competitiveness at risk.
