White House pledges retaliation against hackers, reveals new cyber strategy

WASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - The White House revealed a new national cyber security strategy Thursday, outlining the federal government’s defensive priorities while pledging to go on offense against foreign hackers.

The strategy provides federal agencies with new guidance for how to protect themselves and the private data of Americans, White House National Security Adviser John Bolton told reporters. The plan comes less than two months before the Nov. 6 midterm elections, when U.S. intelligence officials expect a flurry of digital attacks.
