US President-elect Donald Trump intends to implement a program for defense against cyber attacks. This writes DW.
It should be implemented within the first 90 days of his presidency, Trump said, after meeting with the head of the US Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, and other leaders of the US intelligence services. During the meeting sides discussed the issue of Russian hacker attacks during the electoral process in the United States.
The new US leader said that Russia, China and other countries are constantly trying to break into government offices, data banks of companies and organizations, in particular the Democratic Party.
Earlier US President-elect Donald Trump called the actions of the current US administration towards Russia over cyber attacks a "witch hunt". Later he acknowledged the Russian involvement in the cyber attacks on US infrastructure, but does not believe that these attacks have affected the election results. This was stated in a special written statement released by the Trump’s office.
