Tom Davis Predicts cyber Pearl Harbor

FCM reports that Congressman Tom Davis of Northern Virginia predicted a “cyber Pearl Harbor” in a future attack on the federal governement. He said that such an attack could cause deaths or financial breakdown.
“FISMA is still viewed by some federal agencies as a paperwork exercise” Davis said at a congressional hearing in March, when the committee released the grades. “But these are shortsighted observations.”
His goal in propping up FISMA is laudable. Computer security in the Federal government is lacking. However, Tom should really think twice about patterning his public speach after Richard Clarke and Chuch Schumer. Is it leadership to say these things? Or is it just a quick way to get public attention?
