Dempsey: U.S. Military Strength Doesn’t Carry Into Cyberwarfare

The Associated Press reports that “Gen. Martin Dempsey says the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment demonstrates the military superiority enjoyed by the United States doesn’t necessarily carry over to the cyberworld.”  

“As chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Dempsey serves as President Barack Obama’s chief military adviser.”  

“In a taped interview aired Sunday on Fox News, Dempsey was asked whether the U.S. was vulnerable to a ‘cyber Pearl Harbor.’ Dempsey notes such attacks could disable critical infrastructure and are incredibly disruptive.”
