“Over time, we’ve seen repeated cyber intrusions,” a White House official told reporters Thursday. “As a result, the president has made cyber security a priority.”

The administration presented a plan to Congress Thursday to prevent hackers and terrorists from tampering with banking and critical infrastructure, such as water facilities, electric grids and chemical plants.
