Obama's Flawed Cybersecurity Strategy

President Obama seems to be poised once again to use executive powers to get what Congress won't give him.

In this case, it's the imposition of a sweeping set of cybersecurity mandates and regulations on the private sector. My latest commentary at Reason.org addresses the problems of the original Cybersecurity Act, which did not muster enough support in the Senate to get to a vote, and why a White House decision to implement it by executive order simply expands the government's surveillance and datagathering power while doing little to secure the nation's information infrastrucuture.
