Donald Trump has missed a deadline on strengthening US cyber security.
Before he was sworn in, Mr Trump said in a statement the US needs to “aggressively combat and stop cyber attacks.” He vowed to “appoint a team to give me a plan within 90 days of taking office.” We have now reached 90 days with no team, plan, report, or executive order on anti-hacking. Michael Sulmeyer, director of the Harvard Belfer Center’s Cyber Security Project and former director of Cyber Policy Plans and Operations at the Defence Department, told The Independent that this should not be a difficult task to complete. There is no real need for a brand new plan or report given all the information leftover from the Obama administration, according to Mr Sulmeyer.
