At last, United States has decided to retort to cyber threats of Russia with a Cyber Taskforce which not only has the efficiency to thwarts the targeted cyber attacks but will also have the potential to launch similar attacks of high range against the adversaries.
As per the sources reporting to Cybersecurity Insiders, NSA and Cyber Command Chief Paul Nakasone have created a dedicated task force to tackle online threats from Putin’s regime.
Although Mr. Nakasone did not specify exactly what the group will do but hinted that it will be “in-line” with what intelligence agencies have been doing it since the 2016 presidential elections.
“If we fail to stand out in the competition, it is like giving chance to our adversaries like China and Russia to take a lead in the virtual battlefield”, said Nakasone who will from now on lead the Cyber Command(the cyber task force) and the NSA on a simultaneous note.
Now, the question is whether the small group will succeed in soliciting the nefarious intentions of Russian to influence the 2018 midterm elections…?
Very recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump met at a summit in Helinski where the two top world leaders tried to carve out peace between the two nations.
After the meeting, Putin disclosed to Fox News that he was extremely happy to meet the US President and was indeed interested to rebuild the lost relationship between the two nations. But when the reporter pointed out fingers on Russia’s interference on US 2016 Polls, he said that the news was fake and proved the reporter to show evidence.
And as soon as the reporter put forward the evidence in paper format, Mr. Putin in an anguished tone asked him to put the paper aside on the side table and denied it to be valid evidence.
After the meeting with Putin, Trump was also struck up in a controversy for first declaring the Russian interference on US 2016 polls as false and then admitting to having committed a grime mistake with the words.
Sources close to Cybersecurity Insiders say that no matter what Mr. Trump speaks to the world about Putin, he is always in a process to protect his nation from the current cyber adversaries and is only interested in making “America the greatest”.
Paul Nakasone admitted that the idea to create a cyber army against Russian cyber threats got full endorsement of Trump and his administration.
