Submission + - Obama to issue an Executive Order on cyber security (thehill.com)

Presto Vivace writes: "Sources: White House to issue cybersecurity order Wednesday

The White House began crafting the executive order after Congress failed to pass cybersecurity legislation last year. Officials said the threat facing the United States was too great for the administration to ignore and that it needed to take action as Congress grappled with passing a bill.

So will this be CISPA by presidential fiat? We will have to see the Executive Order when it comes out; but I cannot deny that I have a bad feeling about this."
