Executive Order — Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity


By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to enhance cybersecurity awareness and protections at all levels of Government, business, and society, to protect privacy, to ensure public safety and economic and national security, and to empower Americans to take better control of their digital security, it is hereby ordered as follows:

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, the Majority Leader of the Senate, and the Minority Leader of the Senate are each invited to recommend one individual for membership on the Commission.

One Response to Executive Order — Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity

  1. Enquirer says:

    Is this the precursor to nationalization of data management and distribution, or merely another cash cow for Obama cronies?

    Naturally, the entire operation is to be enshrined beneath the dubious cloak of the ubiquitous commerce clause.

    One might feel a hint of concern over the potentially broad application of the term “personal security”. This could in fact open the door to the hallowed chip implant that many find noxious and evil in design. Who can say?

    Of particular interest is the self-imposed life span of the comittee. Note that it expires more or less with the presidency. What exactly does that signal?
