FBI confirms that Cyber Threats in all 50 states have hit peak

Federal authorities investigating in all 50 states have come to a conclusion that Radical Islamic Terrorists are all set to attack the US nation in all forms in coming days. In a move of retaliation for dropping Mother of All Bombs on some caves in Afghanistan, a group of ISIS terrorists acting as sleeper cells has issued a warning to US law enforcement agencies that they will hit back strong.

John Kelly, the Secretary of Homeland Security said to the audiences at Washington, DC that he and his government is aware of the lurking danger from all kinds of bad actors- criminals, homegrown terrorists, cyber terrorists, smugglers and transnational criminal organizations and sadistic radicals from failed states.

But Kelly assured to the audiences at George Washington University that he under the administration of Donald Trump have taken all necessary steps meant to protect the entire populace of the nation. As the future of war will become virtual in the form of cyber attacks on networks of computers, US military, and intelligence agencies have become more and more interested in defending their infrastructure and launching retaliation driven attacks on enemy computers.

Giving a tip-off of the available sophistication, Kelly said that the US army will now on treat cyber attacks as artillery fire and will have experimental vehicles in place having undefined cyber warfare equipment which can deter cyber threats of any magnitude on critical systems like power and nuclear grids.

These mobile systems operated by CIA will have the capability to deter cyber attacks on those networks which aren’t connected to the internet like spoofing GPS signals, disrupting satellite communication and grabbing voice communications of enemies.

Kelly also shared details of a simulated cyber attack made on a recent note on the East Coast’s energy systems which was meant to test the withstanding level of the energy department’s cyber defense. The attack was conducted in December 2016 and was called Liberty Eclipse and was the first of its kind to incorporate the effects of a multi-state cyber incident.

Mr. John said that the energy department has all necessary techniques in place to thwart cyber attacks on any level. 

On an additional note, Department of Homeland Security and the FBI will also from now coordinate to identify legal restrictions on sharing cybersecurity info gathered during an FBI law enforcement action.

All seems to be fair in the name of National Security….isn’t it?
