The U.S. Pledges A Harder Line In Cyberspace — And Drops Some Hints
Army Gen. Paul Nakasone, who heads both the National Security Agency and the U.S. Cyber Command, usually doesn’t say much in public. But recently, he’s been on what amounts to a public relations blitz. The message he’s pushing is that the U.S. will be more aggressive in confronting and combating rivals in cyberspace.
‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU lawmakers approve controversial copyright reform
