Feds lack managed response to a large-scale cyber attack. GAO report cites lack of coordination between feds and civilian authorities in the event of a significant cyber assault. This article from Network World is more scary to me right now because I’m listening to the second book in the Daniel Suarez series “Daemon” where the Feds lack managed response to a large-scale cyber attack from the Daemon.
I suggest read a book before you dive headlong into the next shiny bright thing in databases. This book appears to be a good read, I’ve downloaded it to my Kindle and started it. So far it is very interesting and easy to read. If you don’t have any background in databases I would suggest reading an entry level book first. This review by I Programmer is a much better review than I would ever write, give it a quick2-minutee read. We are truly in the “next Generation” of database evolution, you need to pay close attention to what going on right now, or be stuck in the dBase/Paradox past again.
