Congress due to vote on a cyber security bill.
Texas Congressman Michael McCaul is one of the main advocates for an anti-cyber terrorism bill that Congress is set to vote on tomorrow. McCaul believes that cyber attacks could cast a cataclysmic event in the U.S. which could bring real physical harm to Americans.
"The director of the National Security Agency told me it's not a matter of if but when a 'Cyber Pearl Harbor' will occur," McCaul said during a congressional hearing.
McCaul says that every major federal agency has been hacked into primarily by the Chinese. And Terrorism Expert Joan Neuhaus Schaan with the Baker Institute of Rice University says that radical Islamists are also beefing up their presence on the internet.
"The internet has been used by jihadists for a number of years now for incitement, training, propaganda and intimidation," says Schaan.
