    In its 7 December 1956 issue, the HARVARD CRIMSON noted: “Three problems plague the attainment of an effective civil defense program for the United States. Lack of inter-state, inter-city, and national coordination, lack of public interest, and lack of a realistic civil defense program are the obstacles in the road to a more sound program for survival in a nuclear conflict. The present civil defense system has proven inadequate because of inefficient cooperation, apathy, and misguided effort.”

    Is this true today in terms of current efforts in the United States to deal with international government and non-government cyber-terrorism?

      This is a very timely subject,  whether you're meaning defense in case of nuclear attack or defense from "cyber terrorism"............which,   please explain what you mean by cyber terrorism.......

      And wow....1956!    I don't think we have any better defense in case of nuclear attack than we did in 1956...........

        Exactly. We do need to be thinking civil defense again and actively preparing the public for a cyber attack (from any number of international state or non-state terrorists groups) which has the potential to disable (if not destroy) our infrastructure---and for a significant period of time.
