President Obama to Announce New Initiatives Surrounding Cybersecurity and Internet Access

Category: Internet
Posted: 07:28AM

According to White House officials, President Obama is set to announce a variety of new initiatives next week that will address online security as well as increased access to broadband Internet across the United States. The announcement will take place over a series of speeches, where President Obama will outline the need for increased identity theft protection, better privacy protection, more robust cybersecurity, and increased access to high-speed Internet. The news of the announcement comes roughly one week before the President is set to deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress, and just months after the recent hack on Sony Pictures. As more and more companies experience data breaches due to increased cybersecurity attacks, the soon to be announced initiatives will address not only governmental cybersecurity but private sector as well.
