President To Issue Order On Cyber Attack Defense?

According to "sources familiar with the matter" the President may issue an executive order aimed at improving the nation's defenses against cyber attacks as soon as tomorrow.

The order, drawn up after Congress failed to pass cyber defense legislation last year, is meant to improve the protection of critical industries and infrastructure from cyber intrusions. Concerns about cyber attacks, which have hit a succession of major U.S. companies and government agencies in recent months, also could be raised by Obama in his annual State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday evening.
