    Again another slam against the government and how it does its
    business. Where was this individual when they were writing the
    document.  Sitting on the sidelines drinking latte's and protesting
    our war more than likely.
    Here's my thoughts, the government had two choices
    1.  Legislate compliance with federal statutes (what dod and the rest
    of the government must comply with) for businesses which would have
    drawn the ire of epic and people like this author or
    2.  Attempt to utilize value input from real security experts than
    publish what leaders from IBM MS and others tell them.
    A true snapshot of what can happen is going to happen this year and
    when it does I will be laughing all the way to the bank, and people
    like this author will be eating crow.

    I guess this is true if you live with your head in a very dark place.  
    Let's see if we can give the writer a clue. Tens of millions of
    identities compromised on credit bureau and credit card sites. Let's
    connect the dots. 15 out of the 19 hijackers on September 11th were
    using multiple identities.
    This writer tells the same head in the sand story that everything is
    OK, because I am ignoring the problems. Sounds like the NASA approach
    to shuttle flight safety.

    It is hard to imagine that someone with the credentials to get this
    article published could be so wrong on so many points he makes about
    the administration's National Strategy To Secure Cyberspace!
    Hopefully, it is because Mr. Koerner is just misinformed and doesn't
    understand the differences between threats and vulnerabilities.
    Brendan fits in with the same people who said that an airliner would
    not be used as a weapon because it hadn't been done in the past. He
    would  probably also fit in well with those who thought that Japan's
    naval air power wasn't a threat to America prior to W.W.II because of
    the logistic problems in extending such a force across the Pacific.
    The only correct conclusion Mr. Koerner draws is towards the end of
    his article where he says "Most [of the reports solutions] are
    meaningless jargon..." The Government has definitely failed to step up
    and taken the actions necessary to secure our critical information
