Tories say 'hack them before they hack us'?

Interesting moves coming from the Tories on the matter of information security and so-called "cyber-defence". Baroness Neville-Jones, Tory spokeswoman on things like security and counter-terrorism has said on the subject of dealing with Internet based attack on UK infrastructure,
We need an active defence. By this I mean using technologies that are able to identify unexpected events, trace them to source and immediately disrupt them. In other words, for our cyber defence to be effective we must allow the use of offensive tactics.
Sounds like a fun job! I bet China will be quaking in their boots now!
