A panel of experts suggests the nation needs better protection from cyber attacks.
The panel says President-elect Barack Obama should create a new White House office to protect cyberspace from hackers, thieves and foreign agents. The panel believes efforts should be coordinated across U.S. military, intelligence and civilian agencies.
Obama is expected to be receptive to many of the proposals dealing with cyberspace. One calls for online "data warrants," as opposed to traditional search warrants. The panel says old-style warrants could be outdated in the online environment.
The report is to be made public Monday on Capitol Hill.
