The president has been making small appearances around the country to preview his State of the Union speech slated for next Tuesday, Jan. 20, and now this week he'll talk about cyber security, an issue that's on everyone's mind after the Sony hack.
After a speech on identity theft at the Federal Trade Commission on Monday, President Obama will appear at the National Cyber Security and Communications Integration Center on Tuesday to discuss cyber security and efforts to collaborate with the private industry to combat cyber threats.
The National Cyber Security and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) is a 24x7 cyber situational awareness, incident response, and management center that is a national nexus of cyber and communications integration for the Federal Government, intelligence community, and law enforcement.
The NCCIC shares information among the public and private sectors to provide greater understanding of cyber security and communications situation awareness of vulnerabilities, intrusions, incidents, mitigation, and recovery actions.
The president then heads to Iowa on Wednesday, where he will lay out new steps to increase access to affordable, high-speed broadband across the country.
Three days out of the President's busy schedule this week, a good portion of the State of the Union speech dedicated to this subject next week...there should no longer be any doubt that this is a major issue that affects every American citizen. It will be interesting to hear the President's thoughts on and plans for this growing concern.
