In the video below, “The Resident,” goes over Barack Obama’s proposed budget and points out that while many countries are waging war at the moment, it isn’t bombs and missiles and combat, but a Cyber War that is being underreported and is the actual World War III that is being waged.
According to the numbers, Lori Harfenist explains, Obama’s proposed budget for 2014 explicitly calls for more “military hackers” to head off escalating cyber threats from other superpowers. The budget also proposes an increase of Defense Department spending on cyber efforts by $4.7 billion while cutting Pentagon spending overall by $3.9 billion.
While all eyes and media reports are busily focusing on Egypt, Syria and other countries at war, it could very well be what we cannot see in images and videos that is the biggest threat.
With the recent “glitches, outages, technical errors,” we have seen at large tech companies like Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, as well as the most recent three-hour halt of trading at Nasdaq, is it possible that one or some of those issues were caused by cyber attacks from other superpowers?
