Phi Beta Iota: The German approach differs substantially from that of the US in that it avoids offensive capabilities and the expense of vaporware and sock puppets; it recognizes the importance of cyber-security across all normal elements of government, not just the “national security” zone; it places a very high priority on educated personnel (instead of shutting down USB ports); and it recognizes that cyber-security is impossible to achieve in the absence of trusted hardware and software (at the code level, which is a foreign language to the US cyber-mandarins).
