Default Post Unprepared for cyberattacks?

People with knowledge of national intelligence briefings say that little has
been done to protect the country against a cyberattack. Senator Jon Kyl
(R-Ariz.) says: "It's a big threat, because it is easy to do and can cause
great harm," and vulnerable U.S. targets are said to include the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention; FedWire, the money-movement clearing system
maintained by the Federal Reserve Board; computer systems that operate
water-treatment plants or that run electrical grids and dams; facilities
that control the flow of information over the Internet; the nation's
communications network, including telephone and 911 call centers; and air
traffic control, rail and public transportation systems. Rep. Jane Harman
(D-Calif.) says: "What I fear is the combination of a cyberattack
coordinated with more traditional terrorism, undermining our ability to
respond to an attack when lives are in danger." (USA Today 6 May 2002;
