Private Sector to get intel

A new White House executive order is being prepared that would direct U.S. spy agencies to share the latest intelligence about cyber threats with companies operating electric grids, water plants, railroads and other vital industries to help protect them from electronic attacks. The Associated Press says this comes amid growing concern that Iran could be the first country to use cyber terrorism against the United States. The military is ready to retaliate if the U.S. is hit by cyber weapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said.
