With no plan to respond to cyberattacks, U.S. risks reliving 9/11

In the wake of a widespread cyberattack, the United States could face the same lack of coordination and preparedness the nation experienced after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks because the government has not developed clear policies for how to respond, a panel of current and former federal security officials said on Monday.”In terms of terrorism response, I think we’re getting well-practiced and well-organized. We are an efficient nation,” said Gen. Michael Hayden, principal at consulting firm Chertoff Group and former director of the CIA. “Not so with the new age threat of cyberattacks, [where] we are not well-organized. It’s very unclear who would be in charge of response.”
