Why go Public on Vulnerabilities?

I’m baffled at how this BPC group got funding to produce a simulation and report on the observations throughout a cyberattack exercise.

And, why in the world would you publish the findings through CNN!??  Why don’t we just invite a cyber-terrorist along for the exercise as well!??  Gheez!

This sounds rather naive:  ““We can turn the [National Security Agency] loose on this problem, and gather tons and tons of information, gigabytes beyond imagination,” he promised.”  Yeah, we’re going to sit there and sort this out as the country comes crashing down…

I’ll give them credit for at least trying to sort out HOW to respond in these scenarios… because, by golly, no one ever seems to prepare for the worst anymnore.
