    Could President Obama be Virnetx next partner. Could we get 2 pieces of good news next week..

    This is part of an article from Sunlight and it made me think of when the President used Virnetx technology in the Bin Laden raids. If the President is thinking about cyber security and computer security who do you think he will think about first. You can bet he is going to think about the company who got them through the raid with secure communications. Just seems logical to me. This could be very good news.Great catch Sunlight,Thanks.I am still digesting the idea.Here are just a few sentences......................................................................................................................................................." Obama Said Near Issuing Executive Order on Cybersecurity
    By Eric Engleman & Michael Riley - Feb 8, 2013 9:02 AM PT


    President Barack Obama will issue an executive order aimed at bolstering U.S. cybersecurity as soon as next week, according to two former White House officials briefed on the administration’s plans.

    The executive order, expected to be released after Obama’s Feb. 12 State of the Union address, sets up a voluntary program of cybersecurity standards for companies operating vital U.S. infrastructure, according to the former officials, who asked to not be named because the order hasn’t been issued yet.

    The administration has been drafting an executive order on computer security since at least last fall, before the Senate failed in its second attempt to pass Obama-backed legislation to create cyber standards for companies. Obama has said critical assets such as water-treatment plants and railway systems serving millions of people are vulnerable to hackers and need greater protection.

    The administration is preparing the order amid recent cyber attacks including the security breach of a U.S. Federal Reserve website, intrusions at the New York Times and other newspapers attributed to Chinese hackers, and denial-of-service attacks that disrupted websites of U.S. banks.

    The order directs federal agencies to consider incorporating the cybersecurity standards into existing regulations, according to the officials. It directs the government to share more information about computer threats with the private sector and issue more security clearances allowing industry representatives to receive classified information, the officials said. " And the company we are partnering with is Virnetx . Their technology was create for the CIA ( of course this last sentence was added by Willie )
