Cyber attacks occur almost every week and do not look like they will slow down anytime soon which is why it is crucial to create an effective cyber security plan. The White House has recently proposed a plan that they think will help lessen cyber attacks and increase government response rate. This plan proposes to renovate outdated computer systems since it is much easier for hackers to break in. They also aim to train and recruit people for federal jobs that focus on cyber security, according to an article from Wall Street Journal.
This cyber security plan expects to cost $19 billion, which is a 35% increase in the cyber security budget. The plan expects to begin October 1st and end September 30th 2017. This plan will not stop cyber attacks but rather decrease the amount and increase response rate.
