Re: President Obama
Wait until somebody hacks .MIL and sends a nuke to the White House. However Stuxnet was aimed at Iran which recieved much its nuclear know how from Pakistan; Paki nukes are armed and aimed at India. Apparently wasn't hard for NSA to hack their military and someone could send a nuke to Israel or India. Start WWIII.

Industry led
Worth noting in today's announcements; Michael Daniel, Special Assistant to the President and Cybersecurity Coordinator said that the Cybersecurity Framework will continue to evolve but will ultimately be handed over to industry (or an industry led not-for-profit) to administer.  That's a good sign that the administration understands that for this to succeed, industry needs to own it, not government.
