When you desperately need the help of a group, it’s usually not a good idea to call them would-be terrorist.

Brian Castellani‘s insight:

That probably wasn’t the smartest thing to say because the government desperately needs hackers. And usually, when you desperately need someone, implying that they’re sex-starved, basement-dwelling, would-be terrorists isn’t a good idea. The administration considers cybersecurity “one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation.” Last year Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned of a “cyber-pearl harbor” and this spring the Pentagon announced it would be increasing its cybersecurity force fivefold. But the administration has a problem: Throughout the federal government there is a lack of cybersecurity expertise. And who has the skills to help with that? (ummm… yeah… If you can take care of that – that’d be great. o.0) #Hackers.
