Securing Cyberspace Posted by Mikko @ 09:01 GMT

Yesterday President Barack Obama announced his plans for securing cyberspace.

It would have been hard to imagine George Bush giving a talk about malware and bots. And that's exactly what Obama did.

From Obama, phrases like this sound perfectly natural: "we've had to learn a whole new vocabulary just to stay ahead of the cyber criminals who would do us harm -- spyware and malware and spoofing and phishing and botnets."

President Obama also mentioned Conficker by name, which was interesting. The full text of his speech is available online.

Another quote: "Our Information Age is still in its infancy. We're only at Web 2.0."

My comments on President Obama's announcement are available in the New York Times.
