Govt, Congress eye power to take 'extraordinary measures' in cyber attacks

Govt, Congress eye power to take 'extraordinary measures' in cyber attacks 16 Jun 2010 The government may have to take "extraordinary measures" in responding to a cyber attack false flag that affects critical public or privately-run computer networks, a senior Homeland Security official said. National Cyber Security Center director Phil Reitinger said Congress should work with the administration to determine if new presidential emergency powers are needed to govern how key industries such as power plants, the electrical grid and vital financial systems respond during a cyber crisis. A key Senate committee is proposing the president have more specific authority over how major industries react.
