ABSTRACT
In the early and mid 1990s, telecommunications networks and the Internet drove business growth in the United States. The growing dependence on such networks, however, also increased US vulnerability to cyber exploitation. Indeed, by the end of the twentieth century, the US had become more vulnerable than any other nation to cyber attacks aiming to interrupt, degrade, or destroy vital services such as electrical power, banking, or stock trading. A determined terrorist group with cyber tools and knowledge gleaned from publicly available information could threaten the very money supply on which a free market depends.
