Cyber warfare stocks

According to the New York Times, which is a media sponsor of the Aspen conference, Gen. Alexander is wholly over whelmed by our current operational readiness for such endeavors: General Alexander said that what concerned him about the increase in foreign cyber attacks on the United States was that a growing number were aimed at "critical infrastructure," and that the United States remained unprepared to ward off a major attack. On a scale of 1 to 10, he said,  American preparedness for a large scale cyber attack is "around a three." He urged passage of legislation, which may come to a vote in the next week, that would give the government new powers to defend private computer networks in the United States. The legislation has prompted a struggle as American companies try to avoid costly regulation on their networks, and some civil liberties groups express concern about the effect on privacy.
