The part about being able to persue cyber criminals is fantastically worrying when you consider the increasing trend for the US to stray from the judicial path when it suits them. Hundreds of prisoners held in custody without even so much as being charged. I can just see gun slinging, self appointed protectors of the Internet hounding those that dare to voice an unpopular opinion.

The US developed nuclear weapon and used it successfully against Japan as the sole nation that had used nuclear weapon.

However the US always hate other nations doing the same thing. Great world leader.

We need to act quickly. I like that you say “Second, companies that operate critical U.S. infrastructure should meet some basic standard to protect their customers and our way of life. We have discussed ways for government to work with industry to set these standards while allowing private-sector initiative to determine the specific manner of companies’ compliance. The model may work for other sectors, as a more nimble, smarter alternative to overly prescriptive administrative regulation.”

I think that “PCI DSS” is a mature approach to protect sensitive information in the payment industry. The “PCI DSS” rules would be a great starting point also in this area.
