LOS ANGELES – The cyber security chief of a private intelligence firm applauded President Obama’s call for stronger cyber security and said that although the President signed an Executive Order, it was not sufficient and that immediate legislation by the U.S. Congress was required.

Kayla Cohen, deputy director of cyber security for GCIS (Griffith Colson Intelligence Service) said her company’s C.A.T.S. (Cyber Assault Tactical Service) unit “has served our agency well, but my goal and the goal of our director (W. Edward Griffith) is to enhance our cyber defense capabilities and make C.A.T.S. even stronger”.

Cohen added that the agency’s DefenseTech Systems Group subsidiary would play a major role in enhancing the GCIS cyber security infrastructure to thwart any hacker or cyber attacks.

Cohen cited cyber attacks against the CIA, banks and private intelligence agency Stratfor as examples for concern.
