DHS Worries More About a ‘Fundamental Attack’ in Cyberspace than Theft, Napolitano says

“The Homeland Security Department is more devoted to preempting a future cyberattack that could upend the economy or kill civilians than countering ongoing cyber fraud, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said of her agency’s multifaceted network protection agenda. 

‘From a standpoint of where we focus most of our efforts — we do the theft of intellectual property, the counterfeiting, all of those kinds of cases — but where we are focused within the security of the United States is really on that fundamental attack, that fundamental interference that could shut us down,’ she said at a Senate hearing on Thursday.”
