After (A) reading chapter 1 and (B) reviewing the Presidential Executive Order, please consider the following scenario for this discussion:

In this scenario, the United States expects a large-scale, coordinated cyber-attack organized by China. These attacks debilitate the functioning of government agencies, parts of the critical infrastructure, and commercial ventures. The IT infrastructure of several agencies are paralyzed, the electric grid in most of the country is shut down, telephone traffic is seriously limited and satellite communications are down (limiting the Department of Defense’s [DoD’s] ability to communicate with commands overseas). International commerce and financial institutions are also severely hit.

Your assignment for this discussion:

explain in your own words how you believe the DHS should handle the situation described above considering the executive order and any principles of Chapter 1.
