Udall seeks to fund Colo. cyber defense program

DENVER | U.S. Sen. Mark Udall is trying to round up funding for cyber-defense training programs at the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Udall said Monday computer hackers threaten the United States and could cripple the electrical grid, water supplies and computers used by the military.

Earlier this year, Udall got an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 to study whether government efforts to recruit and train computer security experts are meeting national security needs.

    Sure, more ‘funding’ for studies and programs and whatever other useless ways ‘they’ can find to waste money and resources.  Udall ‘got’ an amendment to fund a ‘study’.  Don’t you ever wonder where all the tax money goes, where here’s an example.  We will fund a ‘study’ whether government efforts (TAX MONEY) to recruit and train computer security experts are meeting national security needs.  In the meantime his sitting president did away with NASA, did away with the security grids in Europe that protected us all.  And Udall gets funding for training that is already under way?  It’s nuts and it’s why we are broke.
