'National emergency': Cyber attackers face new sanctions
April 01, 2015
A new executive order freezes the assets of foreign hackers believed to be involved in attacks against U.S. infrastructure and blocks their entry into the country.
The U.S. Postal Service says it's ready to meet the shipping demands brought on by Cyber Monday, the world's biggest Web-based shopping day of the year.
"The holiday season is our Super Bowl, with 365 million packages expected to be delivered by the Postal Service this year," said USPS Domestic Products Vice President Gary Reblin. "Whether it's Cyber Monday or any day, USPS will continue to take a leadership role as a catalyst of e-commerce trade between consumers and online merchants."
According to the National Retail Federation, 51.8 percent of people will take advantage of online sales this year, which is expected to reach nearly $100 billion this holiday season.
