Someone at the main U.S. intelligence agency that focuses on threats and vulnerabilities in the skies is really into UFOs. America tops the list of global cyber powers. And California now requires that schools report data breaches. This is CyberScoop for Sept. 27.

What's with the UFO on this intel agency seal?

When the U.S. intelligence community’s main aviation component updated its seal recently to include images of a flying saucer and what appears to be a Russian fighter jet many wondered if it was a joke. Turns out it may have been, but the leadership of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence does not appear to be amused. A spokesperson there told CyberScoop in an emailed statement that its National Intelligence Manager for the Air Domain, also known as NIM-Aviation, “erroneously posted an unofficial and incorrect logo.” So, no, the agency wasn’t hacked, as several people who spotted the seal also wondered. Suzanne Smalley has the story.

US tops cyber power world list

The U.S., followed by China, Russia, the U.K. and Australia, round out the world's top five cyber powers, according to the latest National Cyber Power Index from Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center. The list attempts to contextualize a country's holistic ability to corral cyber capabilities and use them to achieve objectives, such as surveillance, cyber defense, manipulating the information environment, foreign intelligence collection and attacks on others. The list isn't the only of its kind — as noted by the Washington Post's Tim Starks — but does help observers think through what cyber power means and who's wielding it. Read the analysis.

California's new K-12 cyber reporting law

California Gov. Gavin Newsom last week signed a bill requiring grade schools to report cyberattacks and other breaches to the state’s cybersecurity team. The new law encompasses K-12 districts, county education boards and charter schools, requiring those organizations to report any incident that affects at least 500 students — or other individuals — to the California Cybersecurity Integration Center, a multi-agency security operations center in Sacramento. It’ll also order the center — which is run by the California Office of Emergency Services, in conjunction with the California Department of Technology, California Highway Patrol and National Guard — to create a registry of cyberattacks reported by local education systems.
