This is garbage. Seizing control of networks after the fact does nothing for security. Security is a preventative measure.
Three months later, that post remains empty, one top cybersecurity aide has quit, and some wags have begun to wonder why a government that receives failing marks on cybersecurity should be trusted to instruct the private sector what to do.
Exactly.Fuck this shit.

Come on guys. You know that the feds have our best interest in mind. They are here to help us. They can't go to sleep unless they know we're safe. They love us and they're here to help. They only want the best for us.... Plus they know more than us. They have all the experts at their disposal, they have all the big global corporations to help them build the infrastructure.... It's all good! There's nothing to worry about. It's not like some sci-fi "conspiracy theory" film where the government is out to get it's people...LOL!! This is reality, the government just wants to protect us. I mean, have you seen Obama smile and laugh on TV? He's such a nice guy, there's no way he would be doing anything that didn't serve our interest......

Who gets to define what exactly has to happen for it to get turned off?

It's probably cheaper for them to be reactionary than to invest in prevention.
