In last night's State of the Union address, among the topics covered by President Obama was cyber security, how important it is to our nation, and how ill-equipped we are when it comes to protecting ourselves.

Obama issued an executive order that's intended to increase information sharing about cyber threats between governments and private companies that are involved in critical infrastructure across the country.

Siobhan Gorman, intelligence correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, joins the show.
