" floundering compared to more tech-minded countries overseas "

I hear you, I would not think the other countries are better than US. Most are more repressive even in the western worlds, it is just we are not hearing about them as often.

Encryption?
 

Is there anything related to device encryption on this policy? Remember Apple vs. government?

DNC email system leak
 

DNC email system leak is not a new attack but somehow is surfaced these days, there seems there is politics playing a role in this too.

" I feel like either of them would make horrible technological decisions and leave the U.S."

I would say it is more like their advisers, not the presidents who make the decision. Presidents would make a decision based on the support of the public.

If it does what title says it does there is no harm on this policy. Federal agencies are supposed to operate, coordinate, and respond to major cyberattacks.

Positive, but concerned
While it's been pleasing to see Obama take more of an interest in digital security over the past year or so, I am truly worried that neither Clinton nor Trump would understand technology well enough to take it seriously. Clinton's handling of her email server is a prime example. I feel like either of them would make horrible technological decisions and leave the U.S. floundering compared to more tech-minded countries overseas.
