From Homeland Security Today:

Senior US intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and National Security Agency (NSA) Director, Army Gen. Keith Alexander, last month continued the cyberwar drumbeat with warnings to Congress that the US is woefully unprepared for a major cyberattack against critical infrastructures.

And while both men were forced under questioning to tone down their rhetoric and acknowledge that the chances of such a devastating attack were, in fact, “remote,” the world is now facing a confluence of events that are raising tensions significantly around the issue of state-sponsored cyber attacks.
