WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says recent cyberthreats to Sony and the military's U.S. Central Command are reminders of the serious threats facing the U.S.

Obama unveiled a proposal for cybersecurity legislation at the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center just outside Washington. He says cyberthreats pose "an enormous challenge."
