In his State of the Union address, he urged Congress to pass even tougher measures. And cyber warriors will even be eligible for their own combat-related medal soon. The Pentagon has announced it's creating the Distinguished Warfare Medal, the first new medal since the Bronze Star in 1944, to recognize soldiers who excel in cyber and drone attacks. "Terrorists, organized crime, rogue nations - any of them can bring this country to its knees with a handful of tenacious and skilled hackers, and a plan," Martin says. "It's not inconceivable that a terrorist organization could divert millions of dollars from our banks to purchase weapons. Or, they could shut down a whole geographical region." While Martin applauds these initial steps, he says the United States must work quickly to get a real cyber defense system in place. Like us on Facebook - www.facebook.com/thexzoneradiotvshow
