The White House has just created a whole new cyber security plan that aims to strengthen computer networks against cyber attacks. The plan believes to cost about $19 billion, which is a 35% increase in the cyber security budget. The money would be used in the fiscal year that starts October 1st until September 30, 2017, according to an article from Wall Street Journal. Hackers have a huge advantage over us and we experience cyber attacks almost every week.
