UK perspective wanted
I've noticed that here as well as other U.K. based forums that it seems everyone (US and UK users) put all (or most of) there stock in what U.S agencies do or think. Dept of Justice say this or NASA says that, or Dept of Defense says this etc....

The EU is more concerned about making sure the Spanish can fish in British waters, but the Brittish must never fish in Spanish waters, so we(i) never seem to hear anything in terms of infosec, or IT related issues, as it seems to get put on a back burner all the time.

I don't like quite a few things about the US and plan to at least highly consider moving to another when I graduate from college. I think that the main reason for the US being referenced in this way is that we're such a big country made up of small states (and a nicely tiered government)...that organizations like the EU would want to emulate it (because it works well, all in all)."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
